I would be interested in answers to this question as well.

Subject: maintaining electronic journals holdings information

It has recently come to our attention that the electronic journal
holdings information in our PAC is not as complete as it might be. For
example, we have not noted when access is for full-text, abstracts only,
or some combination of the two. I am interested in learning how other
libraries go about maintaining holdings information for electronic
journals. For example, does someone on your staff periodically check the
holdings information for each e-journal?

Replying off list is fine, unless this question is of interest to others
as well.

Thank you for the information!
