Suggested periodicals listings for small US public libraries Christine Forte 19 Aug 1998 08:56 UTC

Does anyone know if a list of suggested periodicals for small US public
libraries exists?

Is there an accepted rule of thumb about keeping magazine subscriptions
based on popularity/circulation as opposed to keeping magazine
subscriptions because they are "must haves" for a public library?  I.E.,
How important are circulation statistics in public libraries for
determining which magazine subscriptions are maintained?  Does some set of
guidelines exist?

I am familiar with Katz's Magazines for Libraries and am looking for
something more specific.

Thanks and best regards,
