Matt. We use Galaxy online system and
found that EBSCO would upload records for
us. That what we did. As we add titles I
upload from OCLC. For holdings we list
See Serials Holdings List so that we do
not have to spend a lot of time correcting
records on the system. Hopefully some
time soon we will have an automated check
in system that is compatible with Galaxy.
Until then we improvise.
