Patricia -- leaving your periodicals open for anyone to get to at whim
means that you won't have a collection to reasearch from in the future.

the checkout desk.  They are easily accessible by my library students and
we circulate sometimes 150 periodicals a day during research season.  --

retrieved by my students.  Has worked well for us.

Students may check out the magazines for a week with unlimited renewal
unless someone else has requested the particular issue.
