Shop walls

>Hello, I am finishing up my shop walls tommorrow and I plan on using 3/8 inch plywood (already on hand). Do I but them up on each other or should I leave some space between sheets for expansion? I'm not sure how much plywood expands/contracts but I'm thinking that since I am screwing the ply to studs spacing shouldn't matter since the screws will inhibit movement anyhow. My ceilings are 8 feet and change so I plan on using them vertically and trimming the edges so I can center the edges on studs. Insulation is already up and I have the ceiling in ( 1/4 inch ply). Once all is in I am painting the whole thing white. Any opinions, comments? Thanks in advance, Guy
