[Eril-l] Binding print serials

Dickinson stopped binding serials back in 2009 to save money.  We simply put the unbound issues on the shelf (no containers).   Not binding also saves staff time.   It hasn’t been a problem, although I should mention that we are increasingly using online journals, so use of our print serials has declined accordingly.

Dear All,
I am interested to know if anyone is opting for keeping print serials issues in plastic bags instead of binding them (to reduce binding cost).
