I don't know about this, but it drives me crazy that Ex Libris doesn't just use a moving wall for titles in JStor.  That would make so much more sense!  Then they'd only have to change them when the wall moves, instead of every year.

Subject: [SERIALST] Serials Solutions vs. SFX

We use SFX from Ex Libris as our link resolver. I am wondering how
Serials Solutions handles the JSTOR packages. SFX shows the beginning
and ending years--1911-2006, for example. Every year, unknown when, Ex
Libris will update the latest year so the threshold would read
1911-2007. It's the end of March and any title I check seems to have the
newly added year at JSTOR, but SFX is behind. How much more current is
Serials Solutions with the JSTOR collections?
