Serials Solutions just added a Journal Overlap Analysis service with its
basic package that allows you to compare title lists in databases
(www.serialssolutions.com). Another service is Gold Rush
(http://grweb.coalliance.org/). Both have subscription fees.

Subject: [SERIALST] A & I Database title overlap program?
I am trying to find out if there is a program available that will
run a comparison of titles indexed between two index and abstract
This can be used as a collection development tool. For example, we would
like to know what percentage of overlap occurs between the
Anthropological Index Online and InfoTrac's OneFile.
I realize that other factors need to be considered when camparing
databases of this nature such as how a database is indexed, but for a
rough estimate of overlap it would be nice to have...
Anyone know of a tool that can do this?
