There is a serial titled Current Contents which has a few different
subtitles to choose from.  The one we subscribed to was Current Contents:
 Physical, Chemical, and Earth Sciences.  This serial provides the table of
contents of the latest journal issues of over 900 journal titles.  It is
published weekly by the Institute for Scientific Information.  The ISSN is
0163-2574.  I hope this helps  :-)

  CURRENT CONTENTS offers tables of contents of journals.  We subscribe to
the online version via the web at:
  Another one which will e-mail you the tables of contents from selected
periodicals is CARL UNCOVER (Colorado Alliance of Research

I use the telnet version to automatically e-mail me monthly tables of
contents of selected journals.

Subject:      and...AMY..Who, or what is an IGLOU.COM?

Eamon Fennessy got me curios by asking:

"and...AMY..Who, or what is an IGLOU.COM?"

So I typed IGLOU.COM into my web browser and found:
