Abstract

type:Article

This article reports on the creation of space through the disposal of journals included in electronic journal back-files. Nara Medical University Library had a detached stack to keep journals that were rarely used, such as books published before 1950 and duplicates of journals included in the main library. In January 2010,a decision was made to move the detached stack's rarely used journals by April 2010 so that the stack could be used in another way. Books published before 1950 and duplicates of journals already in the main library were disposed. The disposal work was undertaken because Nara Medical University decided to dispose of journals included in electronic journal back-files that the university had purchased as part of a surplus budget in 2009. A new staff member was employed for this work. In total,120 shelves were required to move foreign journals from the detached stack to a stack in the main library. In April 2010,except for journal bindings including supplements not included in the back-files,3200 journal bindings were disposed and 160 shelves were emptied. Because of the disposal work,the journals in the detached stack could be moved and kept in the main library. This result suggests that the disposal of journals covered in electronic journal back-files is an effective means ofcr eating space.
