Duplicate Periodical Backfiles Policy
The University of Texas Libraries will normally bind or otherwise
retain only one backfile of a periodical. Exceptions will be based on:
used demand and convenience, available space, and cost. The location of
the retained copy will be determined by the bibliographers involved.
Requests to duplicate a backfile will be referred to
the Associate Director of Research Services, who will seek the advice
of the Collection Development Committee. Requests to duplicate a backfile
in microform will be given preference over requests to duplicate in
