Dear Barbara,

I would check a directory like Serials Directory or Ulrich's.  If you
are looking for free full text, I would also check the following:

http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/
http://www.doaj.org/

In addition, if you use an open url resolver from Serials Solutions or
EBSCO, they should be able to help you pinpoint redundancies.  Serials
Solutions actually has a report that you can run for this purpose.
