Other TitleseJournal Verification: Is It Worth the Effort?
AbstractDuring an e-journal verification project at the Health Sciences and Human Services Library, University of Maryland, Baltimore, staff checked every e-journal title asking the following questions: Is it in the A-Z list? • Can you open the earliest and latest full text? • Do the dates in the A- Z list match the publisher’s dates? • Is it in the catalog? • Is there a working Find-It link? • Do the dates in the Find-It link match those in the A-Z list? Digital Resources Librarian and Serials Cataloger corrected problems found. The numbers showed that it was worth the effort.
