With the goal of building a high quality academic library collection in mind, the presenters evaluated the value of journal content accessed through journal aggregator database(s). Data from aggregator provider(s) and data from UlrichsWeb was used to evaluate content with respect for quality, format, coverage and cost. In addition the presenters shared the analysis with library liaisons to inform them of “true holdings” to assist them with collection development.
