Re: managing online access to periodicals subscribed to in print (Kaolin Fire) Ricker, Jan 31 Oct 2008 17:55 UTC

Could you tell us more about having our own portal to the journals?  How
to set it up, etc.

This is a very hot topic right now for me as I have no tech expertise,
yet am expected to make sure all our journals which have online access
are available for our patrons.
THANKS
Jan

Depending on tech expertise on-staff, it's plausible to have your own
portal to the journals (wrapping your own logins so the end-user doesn't

see them, if that's the issue).

But I tend to come at things with a "you could write a program to..."
hammer, as that's my background--and that might be more effort than
creating separate logins to each journal.
