Explanation of Columns in Serials List

Column A: Call number of serial

Column B: Title of serial

Column C (Online Access): marked if title is available online via American Chemical Society, IEEE, or JSTOR

                 A = ACS titles with online access to full archives; print canceled for most titles
                 I  = IEEE titles; print canceled in 2003; archival access back to 1998
                 J = JSTOR titles with online access to full archives

Column D (Not in Cat.): marked if title is not yet available in the Online Catalog

Column E (Move to CS): marked for all titles, i.e. recommended for transfer to compact shelving

Column F (Retain Latest in Stacks): 

                  5 =  JSTOR titles with moving walls of 5 years or less, i.e. latest 5 years

access is available for current issues. In either case, all bound volumes will be moved to compact shelving. If the title is not dead,
then current bound volumes will be added to compact shelving as they are available. No bound volumes will be kept in the general stacks.
