Serials Solutions - ACM branding problem Susan M Hendrickson 30 Nov 2006 18:32 UTC

I'm hoping an institution that subscribes to both Serials Solutions and the
ACM Digital Library will do some testing for me.  I'd like to know if when
using the URLs for ACM titles provided by Serials Solutions in the A-Z
portal results in your seeing branding for an institution other than your own.

Serials Solutions uses a looooooong URL to link to ACM journals' home pages
because that is what most librarians prefer.  Example:  ACM Transactions on
Applied Perception is

Unfortunately, when I click on the long URLs like these, I see different
institutions' brandings (VIVA University Library Serials, Consortia Canada,
Michigan Library Consortia, etc) under the ACM Portal logo.

I've asked Serials Solutions to change the URL's to the table of contents
shortcut (example: because I see my
own institution's branding this way, but they won't do it because
librarians don't prefer the TOC level link.

Serials Solutions cannot duplicate my problem and they suggested I clear my
cache, which I did, but I get the same results.

If you'd be willing to spot check a few titles and let me know if you see
your branding or another institution's, I'd appreciate it.
