reply to Andree on Journal of the American Chemical Society:
Your citation has an error.  Page 9338 is not in vol 127 issue 6, it is issue 26.  However, I found the article on Alkali ...,both html and pdf open for me.

Subject: Question for online subscribers to the Journal of the American Chemical Society

I'm wondering if anyone on SERIALST who subscribes to ACS journals online
can check this for us at the University of Rhode Island.

We have a patron trying to get this article:

"Alkali Metals Plus Silica Gel: Powerful Reducing Agents and Convenient
Hydrogen Sources." Journal of the American Chemical Society v.127:no.26(July
2005): pp 9338-9339.

The link to the article (direct or DOI) does not appear to work. We are
pretty sure this is a problem with the database and not with connectivity on
our end, as we can access other articles from the same issue fine. We get a
message that says "ERROR: The requested article is not currently available
on this site."

As ACS does not appear interested in working with us on this, I'm hoping if
someone can go in and see if they can access the full text of this article.

Many thanks,
andree rathemacher

Subject: Re: Question for online subscribers to the Journal of the American Chemical Society

I tried using our citation linker and got the same message.  There is a
problem on their site.  I can search for articles before and after this
title without a problem.

article before - http://pubs.acs.org/doi/full/10.1021/ja051482n
article after - http://pubs.acs.org/doi/full/10.1021/ja051409x

http://pubs.acs.org/doi/full/10.1021/ja051786+

I did get to the article by searching the ACS site.
Good luck

We're looking into whether it is a proxy issue, if maybe this article uses a
different URL than its neighbors. It is strange, because most SERIALST
respondents COULD get the article, but a few of us cannot!

I will let you know if we determine what the problem is.

And please do report it, as ACS should hear from libraries other than us.

Subject: Re: Questions to veteran serialists

Marilyn,

Where to start!?!?

I've been working with serials off & on (mostly on) for almost 25
years.  Starting in high school, then public libraries, academic,
corporate, and legal (+ variations) libraries.  Part of what still
gets me up in the morning is the variety and challenge of a
constantly changing environment.  I always thought of monographs as a
bit boring whereas working with serials has a built in chaos
factor.  Title changes, frequency changes, format options,
cessations, mergers, cataloging rules, price increases, receipt
issues, delivery breakdowns, vendor/publisher relations, claiming,
shrinking staffing, new/upgrading software & tools...  The list seems
infinite.

Many librarians view serials as way too much trouble to specialize in
but for me they're interesting, kind of like the Chinese proverb "May
you live in interesting times" but in a good way!

Hope this helps and I'm happy to add more if you have specific questions.

Subject: Motivation

Hi, Marilyn -=20
                What motivates me? =20

Part I Serials Librarianship. =20

        (1)  The ever-changing serials world, with all the frustrations =
pertaining thereto (such as title/size/frequency/publisher/voluming and =
numbering changes; (2) the amazing variety of periodicals (pick a topic =
and there's likely a periodical devoted to it); (3) record-keeping, both =
internally for the library and externally for other libraries (think union =
lists and local holdings maintenance here); (4) inter-acting with other =
serials librarians through duplicate exchange and organizational membership=
s and conferences and workshops (e.g.: SERIALST, NASIG, ACRL/ALA, local =
and/or state associations);  (5) being able to impart some of my knowledge =
and experience to our student workers + trying to influence some to =
consider librarianship as a career (my alternative suggestion is to 'Go =
Navy' or think of military service as a good way to start out after =
graduation whilst contributing to one's country); (6) the sweeping =
revolutionary change from print to electronic communication.

Part II  Librarianship generally.

        (1) Repeat #4 and #6 from above.  (2)  As I look back over my =
life, I certainly feel that I have been following a plan. It's not my =
plan, it's God's plan for me and did it ever work! !  I am a librarian !   =
 (3) I like being in libraries, having access to the collection (including =
special collections) and having access to the electronic tools (especially =
when you cannot get to them from off campus because of licensing agreements=
). I like being able to get things via ILL. (3) Money and fringe benefits. =
(It's hard to pay for things via payroll deduction when you're not on the =
payroll, and COBRA coverages only last just so long. (4) Work gives one a =
purpose, a sense of identity. (5) Librarians as a class are well-educated, =
sharp-minded, dedicated professional people. Dare I say it? - we're a fun =
bunch to be with when you get to know us.  =20

        Well anyway those are some things for you to consider.  Good =
fortune with it.
