Full Marc Records for e-journals Kira Haimovsky 21 May 2004 16:22 UTC

We are considering to subscribe to the Full MARC Records service from
(or maybe from EbscoHost, their Marc Records are much less expensive).
I am looking for comments from librarians that already implemented this
product (especially
if they have Sirsi library system).  How did you prepare for it? Did you
clean-up your OPAC before
or after the initial download (if you previously cataloged e-journals using
print records with 856)?
Was it a messy process all together? How are monthly updates handled, is it
a lot of work?
Is there something you wish you have done differently had you known more
about the process
in advance? Any do and don't tips?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
