Re: LDR's on OCLC for electronic journals Charles F. Tremper 29 Aug 2002 17:33 UTC

Dear all,

Here at Syracuse University Library, we are:

1. adding holdings symbol to OCLC electronic version record for
titles with e-only access, but not creating LDRs.

2.  Not closing out LDRs for print titles when access changes from
print to electronic in cases where licenses permit filling ILL

The LDR issue has been on the discussion agenda here, but no
decisions have been made.  I'd be interested in what others are

This were questions I raise at recent NASIG conference and I could really
use information from the serials world.

Who is  --  if you have electronic only access to a journal:

1) Adding your holding symbol to OCLC record

2) Adding as Local Data Record to OCLC

3) Updating the LDR as additional years (backfiles) are made available
electronically by vendors/publishers.

I realize there may be many variations in the answers -- but I would love
to hear from you.  Thanks  Diane
