Mary Page presented a report by the Electronic Resources Integration Committee concerning products to manage e-journals. Demo from three vendors (TDNet, Serials Solutions, and Journal Web Cite) have been completed. Journal Web Cite www.journalwebcite.com is moderately priced and appears to be the best solution for RUL. Pending budget consideration, this product will be purchased.
