Furthering E-Journal Access: More Perspectives from Scotland

Nicholas Joint, Tony Kidd, Willian Nixon, Michael Roberts


This article considers changes over the last two years in the electronic journal service provided by Glasgow and Strathclyde University Libraries, following an earlier article in Serials. We discuss differences between browsing for e-journals on the Web, and searching for them on the OPAC, and examine the ways that each library has tried to combine these different access modes. Following a discussion of possible co-operation between the two libraries, we briefly explore the move towards the ‘one-stop shop’ and the potential contribution of aggregators.
