        To avoid long-term problems that will come back to plague you
later, shelve your periodicals and newsletters by their individual
titles.  If you're not sure exactly what the title is (e.g. one title on
the cover and a variant of it on the title page, etc.) look  it up in
Ulrich's or one of the other sources for verification.

        If you want or need more information on the whys and wherefores,
contact me off list.  Having shelved both ways and then having to correct
it, I have strong opinions about this topic.
