Hello MEDLIBers,

I need to create a journal retention policy for my library, for the Medical Staff 
to approve. I am still kind of new to this and have very little experience writing 
these kinds of documents and unfortunately the library where I work at has no 
policy manual for me to refer to either. 
Anyway what I am hoping for is to get some examples of your journal retention 
policy or a collection development policy that deals with journal retention. I am 
a small medical, solo librarian situation, so similar to that is probably the most 

Thank you,

Karen Bontekoe
