We subscribe (and have for many years) to Yomiuri Shimbun (cost $498).Its
It comes from New York. I don't know if the students enjoy it much, but
since we are and have been maintaining the not-so-cheap subscription,
it must have some value.

If the entire backfile is on micro, we have a note added to the label
at the current periodicals area which says essentially: older vols.
in micrif... at Mic-1 or Mic-9 LC call no.  We don't make any cross

record. (We use NOTIS)
