To add briefly to this, we are a small, academic library, and we do
the same, and it works.  If shelvers can't figure out where one goes,
we tell them to consult the periodical holdings list--viola!

Hi Judy,

Ours is a special library, supporting forest products research.  I have
arranged the journals by alphabetical order, based on the way our
computerized system prints out our holdings list.  It treats initialisms and
acronyms (TAPPI, PC WORLD) as words, so we shelve them that way.  I haven't
checked our method against the AACR2 rules, but it is consistent with our
printed lists, so makes finding the information easy, which is what we're
all about!
