Subject: e-journal in the catalog survey

***This message is cross-posted to several lists.  Apologies for duplicate
messages you may receive.

As background for an article I'm writing about electronic journals in the
library catalog, I would like to hear from those of you who catalog
e-journals or somehow make information about e-journals available through
your library catalog.  I would be very appreciative if you could answer
the following five questions.  Please send responses directly to me at
shadle@u.washington.edu and I will summarize for the list.  As an
incentive, the submitter of each usable reply will be taken out for coffee
in Seattle (or a mutually agreed upon city).  Note: this offer does not
include round-trip transportation to Seattle.  Limited to one offer per
institution.  ;-) Thanks much. --Steve
