Our library is currently considering undertaking a major project.  We are
considering putting all of our journals in LC call number order.  Our
journals are currently shelved in alphabetical order, with every journal
assigned the call number PER.

My question:  do you feel that there is a substantial advantage to shelving
periodicals in LC call number order vs. alphabetically?

Would it be worth the substantial time and effort involved to rearrange the
collection in this way?
