Open vs. closed stacks Ann M. Tenglund 28 May 1991 11:28 UTC

Our Head of Periodicals has asked me to post the following query, to help
aid in a decision of whether to open our now closed periodical stacks.

1. Do you have open or closed stacks?

2. How many periodical assistants (student or otherwise) do you have to
   shelving and maintenance?

3. How do you handle current issues (are they shelved separately, or kept
   with their titles)?

4. If you have open stacks, have you noticed more missing issues with open

5. If you have open stacks, do you wish that you had closed stacks again?

Thank you in advance for any responses you can give us.  We will summarize
replies for the list.
