Actually, we have similar shelves (from the 1930's).  When we replace the current edition, the day old newspaper is moved to the newspaper shelves (slanted shelf that lifts for holding older material).  We currently keep 4 weeks of each newspaper.

I'd like to try not using sticks, but I'll have to run it by my supervisor.  I'm looking at my student schedules for next semester, and none of my returning students would be able to easily fit newspaper processing into their schedules.  If we didn't use sticks, I could process them in a minute or two.
