We track our ejournals through Serials Solutions 360 Core and purchase
MARC records for all ejournals from them as well. We receive monthly
updates containing new titles, amendments and deletions.

Subject: [LIS-E-RESOURCES] Ejournal cataloguing
We are looking at our ejournal cataloguing policy. We currently manually
catalogue both individual ejournal subscriptions and ejournals which
come as a part of large packages, but are finding this difficult to
sustain. It would be useful to hear of other libraries' experiences. I
am happy to summarise for the list.
1. Does your institution manually catalogue both its individual ejournal
subscriptions and ejournals which come as a part of large packages?
2. Do you use MARCit or a similar product?
3. Have there been any downsides from using MARCit, for example, in
terms of reduced searchability of your catalogue?
4. If you answered yes to either of questions 1 or 2, what is your
rationale for continuing to include ejournals in your library catalogue,
rather than rely on the A-Z list of a product such as SFX?
5. Has anyone decided to abandon the cataloguing of ejournals (with
perhaps the exception of individual subscriptions) in favour of the A-Z
list in SFX (or similar product)?
