Update: Bound Journals in Remote Storage

Posted by isulib on May 23, 2011

The status of journal titles in remote storage [currently Normal Hall] has been a topic of much discussion throughout this last year. Classroom faculty have been involved in the process to identify the need to keep print journal titles. The Library’s Library Collection Development Committee has this report from from a recent meeting:

Titles requested to be kept: 10 – Of these 10, 6 are easily acquired through Interlibrary Loan, while 3 are unique holdings. However, the volumes are NOT in good condition.

Tim Gritten, Associate Dean for Library Services, will notify faculty who requested that we keep the 6 about the ILL option and explain that the journals are in poor condition.

For the 3 unique titles, library staff will clean and repair the volumes and put them into the CML Bound Journal collection in the Basement. Classroom faculty will be notified.
