Hello Margaret,

We started out with Ebsco AtoZ but moved away a few years when they had long intermitent down times. They have since resolved and upgraded them.

We use TDNet now.  As it has links to our catalog like most do, we have nearly every title on our AtoZ page(even those with only Print and Dead titles) [HISTORICAL COLLECTION]. This is another access back to our catalog so if a user is searching titles from a bibliography or whatever, if not available electronically the link is there to see if we have it in print. No going back and forth.

As we have dead, active print only, Electronic: both paid and free including OA, we are utilizing a notes field for the titles and have a note ' UMMC Purchase ' (in red) to indicate every title we have where we are actually using funds to purchase it in some format.  This silences anyone (faculty, administrators) who says to us
    " WHY ARE WE PURCHASING THAT CR_ _ !"

Each year that we cancel journals, those are updated.

Those are the 2 differences between what we have and yours.

Have A Great WEEKEND  Y'ALL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (no accent)

I am interested in know what other libraries include in their A - Z lists of journals. We are using the EBSCO A - Z list but it does not matter what platform you are using. Of course EBSCO takes care of including all the full text in our databases. I have added all the current print periodicals but omitted an historical collection. These titles are in the library catalog and rarely used. The issue here is whether this collection should be added.
Thanks.
