I'm curious about what people hope to accomplish with this service. Is
this more geared for ILL?

Have any libraries tried the OCLC eSerials Holding Service yet?  This
is the
service where a vendor (Serials Solutions, SFX, etc.) puts your
holdings for all subscribed electronic resources on the record for the
electronic title in OCLC.

We are thinking of doing this and setting the default to not lend and
reproduce.  The main purpose is for our students, who will see our
symbol next to an electronic title in WorldCat.

What are other libraries' experiences?
