This is how I have been dealing with titles like this.  I link both versions
of the title to the current title's url but also provide an explanatory note
for our clients on our A-Z list.

Subject: [SERIALST] Electronic Serials - Title changes

Please excuse cross-postings.



I am wondering if anyone else is has noticed that the electronic version of
title changes are not listed separately on publisher's websites?  I have
noticed on several publisher's websites (Blackwell, Springer, etc.) that
title changes show up under the most recent title of that serial, so that
the previous title is buried and is not listed separately.  Does anyone know
why the titles are being clumped together and not being listed separately?
This is becoming an increasing issue because as we link to our e-journal
collection from our e-journal list.

If you have noticed this - how are you handling it?

Any information anyone can provide would be helpful.
