On what basis did you pick  up these 300 journals? Are they already in
some database or are they print ones in your library?  You might want to
refer to Mark Jordan, mjordan@sfu.ca from Simon Fraser University. He is
involved with CUFTS, open source link resolver, which deals with online
management tools.  Here i the CUFTS link to see if it meets your needs:

I hope that Mark does not mind my promotion, although I have never met
him. When we are under pressure we have downloaded  brief  CUFTS records
for various databases and via review files in Innopac Millenium
converted them to excel file, sorted them by ISSN or title in order to
find duplicates. Possibly there are also some other methods.
