Re: A - Z lists what is included Lori Fenton 16 Mar 2009 13:51 UTC

Those of you who have everything (or more than just e-journals) in your
A-Z lists, are you maintaining it all in your catalog as well? Seems
like a lot of double work. Does a federated search product help reduce
the need for "one place to search for a title?"

>> 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.
