Shared Periodical Holdings Michelle Makkos 04 Feb 2010 19:55 UTC

Hello everyone,

Does anyone have any experience with a shared periodical collection?  As bound
volumes of journals begin to take up more space along with the fact that so
many journals can be accessed electronically, how beneficial is it for
libraries that are in the same general locale to combine archived periodical
collections in order to save time, space and money?  Has anyone successfully
done it recently?  Any major problems that have been encountered?
