Abstract

Stock checks of print journals have long been a feature of good serials management, but there has not been an equivalent for e-journals. At King's College we thought we ought to do something about that. This paper describes our approach and our findings. A checklist shows what we feel are the most important aspects to such an operation, and can be adapted by other libraries interested in undertaking something similar. Limitations of SFX are noted as are common problems with e-journal management. It is not felt that an automated solution to stock checking e-journals is imminent.
