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.

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. Thanks, Cindy Cynthia L.
