   We subscribe to several of these: JSTOR; Ideal; online versions
available through Ebsco, etc.  The advantage of JSTOR is that because
it is retrospective, we have taken the bound volumes that are
available through JSTOR and put those volumes into storage.
Unfortunately, JSTOR maintains a "window" of several years of recent
issues which will not be available, to discourage cancellation of the
print subscriptions.  Although the Academic Press Ideal titles are as
good a quality as the JSTOR, they are for the more recent issues, and
do not go as far back as the JSTOR volumes do.
   We (San Francisco State University) are subscribing to hundreds of
online periodical titles because our library is out of shelf space.
We are trying to replace bound volumes with online subscriptions
whenever possible.  We are limited to subscribing to services which
allow IP checking (we cannot handle distributing and monitoring use
of ID and passwords to over 20,000 students).
   I put the hotlinks in the bib records from the paper version to the
online versions for each title.  If you want to look at our database
you can search it at:
   You may want to search for Author: JSTOR to see some of our titles
with JSTOR links.
   Let me know if you have any questions.
