Use of Periodicals in Academic Libraries Keith Renwick 24 Jul 1995 14:04 UTC

Please reply to me directly at, not SERIALST.

I am attempting to assess how much interest there would be in a
simple system of recording use of periodicals within the confines of
the library, which is estimated to be the majority of use, or possibly
all in libraries where loan of periodicals is not allowed. Such a system
would need to ensure users DO NOT reshelve issues and volumes after use.
How much of a drawback would libraries consider this to be and what
is your estimate of the percentage of periodicals library staff have to
reshelve at present?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.
