Retention Periods for Periodicals
Journals - Current edition and 11 months back.
Some journals, such as those which are published quarterly, will be retained for less than a year and withdrawn when space under the display shelves is exceeded.
Popular magazines -- Current edition and 11 months back (space permitting)
Newspapers - - Two weeks back, and then recycle. Stacks under the shelves should go from most recent to least recent.
Journals and magazines that are being discarded must be packaged and sent via campus mail to Anita Brown at Wiggins Memorial Library who will delete them from the cataloging system and discard of them. This task will be handled by either the assistant medical librarian or the graduate assistant.
