      In reply to the problem of shelving JAMA:

This is a good example of the joys of classifying periodicals:  we simply
shelve all bound vols. and current issues under the call number -- that
way, all the volumes are together, regardless of title; if there is a
title change it doesn't affect the location of the periodical itself, and
the patrons know exactly where it is.  And really, we have very little
problem with patrons not understanding the call number system: after all,
they have to deal with the same thing for monographs.
