Providing an indication of the relative use of journals in an average academic library, this book will help serials and collection development librarians who must decide to which titles their library will subscribe and how those titles will be maintained in their collections. The circulation patterns found in this unique study have profound and far-reaching significance because of the nearly complete measurement of the use of unbound periodicals in all subjects, the long--and continuing--duration of this study, and the very representative profile of the academic institution and its library.
