We do it for a couple of reasons. One, it is a visual indication to us that the journal issue has been checked into our online catalog system. Checking them in is important so patrons and staff all know that a particular issue has arrived.

Also, it helps the shelvers know how to shelve a journal. Titles can be tricky – is PNAS shelved under Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, or is it shelved under PNAS? Underlining helps to inform them of where it belongs.
