Ms. Pope,
If you are dealing with JSTOR titles, I would recommend that you base your retention schedule on the moving wall for the individual titles. That would insure that you have access to the entire run of the journal, either print or e-archived. You can find this information on the JSTOR web site.
Thank you.

Subject: [SERIALST] journal retention schedules

Hello.  We are needing to weed our bound volumes, particularly JSTOR
titles.  We have never really weeded before, as far as I know.  I have
been here only 4 years and my predecessor was here over 35 years.  Just
so I don't reinvent the wheel on what would should look like and what
information should be in it, would anyone be willing to share with me
their retention schedule?

Thank you.
