I have found the A-Z list provided by Serials Solutions to be very good.
You activate your subscribed titles in the client center and Serials
provides you with the links in a searchable A to Z listing. You also can go
in and change your
"holdings" dates for each title as needed.

This A to Z listing is also the knowledgebase for their Link resolver
product, Article Linker.

As an extendibility to Article Linker, we are looking at putting our
Article Linker URL in our SIRSI catalog for all titles with ISSN's so that
we won't have to maintain
static links in our 856 fields.  Another advantage to this is that it will
also provide links for our print titles
that appear in aggregators.

Serials Solutions has great customer service and can make upgrades to their
products fairly quickly based on the needs of the field.  They listen.

Subject: [SERIALST] TDNet vs. EBSCO

I would like to gather some information on libraries' experiences with
TDnet, especially in comparison with Ebsco A to Z (or even Serials
Solutions). We are using a home grown solution at this time and I am hoping
for something less labor-intensive in upkeep but still affordable and
reliable - Thanks in advance for any experiences you can share -
