Hello Dianne,

We maintain a rather extensive list of e-journals on our
web site and it's done my hand.  Most of the titles we
provide access to are relatively stable, so once they're
up there's little maintanence.  The URLs are compiled by our
Collection Development librarian who determines access
privileges and holdings information.  The URL lists
come to me.  I copy and paste the URLs into their appropriate
slots on the e-journal pages and also catalog those that
are full-text.  We maintain a subject listing as well, so
there's a little more effort that goes into that end of it.

E-journals are heavily used at my institution so the time
devoted with these lists is considered well spent.  To get
a better idea, please take a look at

A colleague who is a member of this list passed this request on to me.

We created an set of electronic journals pages that provides information
about the journal, access and logon information.  We provide both a frames
and non-frames version.

Please feel to check it out and if you would like to ask any questions
contact me directly.

  The Univ. at Buffalo Libraries maintain an alphabetical list of the
e-journals we can access; also a list arranged by subject; and the listing
is keyword searchable. (We currently have over a thousand titles, I
believe).  This is in addition to the catalog records in our OPAC.  To
look at this site go to:

University Libraries.
