Grapevine Public Library uses that type of shelving for our current
periodicals. The big drawback is that patrons often can't find the back
issues. We answer the question several times a day despite the presence of
signs on each shelf saying that back issues are behind the current issue.
Other than that small facytor, it works well and we are pleased with it.
