General criteria for inclusion of electronic journals in the library
- Title must be "selected" – either a selector has specifically
ordered the e-version, or the e-version is automatically included with a
print subscription, or the title is included in a package to which the Library
subscribes. For titles that are freely available on the Web, either a selector
must request cataloging, or we must also have its print counterpart cataloged.
- Content must be full text, not just abstracts or tables of contents, and
not just selected issues/sections. (A very few exceptions have been made.)
- Access must be expected to be somewhat stable and ongoing, and a
stable URL must be available. Trial subscriptions are listed on a
library web page. Titles included in large aggregator packages (e.g.
ProQuest), which are notorious for continually losing & gaining
content, are not cataloged.
