  Trouble is, our SFX coordinator wants print ISSNs rather than e-ISSNs,
so we cannot go this way, which SerSol duly suggested. From all the
replies, I'm beginning to think we need to tweak smth in our SFX for
starters... Thanks!

Is it possible that Serials Solutions somehow miscoded that 022|y for
your bib record?  Their knowledge base is not recognizing 1534-8431
Technical Communications Quarterly.

Can your profile for your Serials Solutions MARC records be tweaked to
exclude 022|y values? One of the customization options is to have
Serials Solutions strip the 022 out and replace it with their own
version.  Their version lists the e-ISSN in the subfield a and the
ISSN in the subfield y.  Perhaps it is just a matter of Serials
Solutions fixing the 022 they are using for that record?

Hi, I tried out the SFX link in our catalog and it worked correctly.
I can't speak for how SerialsSolutions handles the data, but I wonder
they don't have the correct ISSN on their record.
