Analyzes challenges of e-journal cataloging that stem from an ever-growing number of on line publications and aggregator databases. Libraries race to keep up with cataloging and record maintenance produced a broad market for commercial MARC services. In examining a variety of vendors' MARC products, the book outlines dilemmas encountered by libraries when considering acquisitions of such services.

The book concludes with a look into the future of e-resource cataloging from technical and conceptual standpoints.
