We've had it set up for quite a while and it was very easy to do. We've
even changed AtoZ vendors once.   I did talk to our ILL staff before I
did it because it has increased requests for articles.  We even have
freely available online titles requested which borrowers don't realize
they can get for free.

Subject: [SERIALST] OCLCs eSerials service

Hello all,
We've just upgraded to Voyage-7; installed new clients, etc.  Now I have
a question about OCLCs eSerials updating service.
Setting up this automatic updating service seems straight forward. Is it
really as simple as it reads? We use Serials Solutions and I know I need
to activate such service with them also. Are there hidden costs I'm
missing? Are there cautions anyone can share? Is this service 'worth the
effort'?

Thank you.
