Mei-Yuh Shih of the CONCERT Consortium in Taiwan sends the following message: ---------- Forwarded message ---------- Date: Wed, 05 Apr 2000 16:02:00 +0800 From: Mei-Yuh Shih <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Asking MARC formats of the Electronic Journals from Information Providers! Dear Colleagues Following is a request that needs your comments and opinions: In Taiwan, the name of our consortium is called CONCERT (CONsortium on Core Electronic Resources in Taiwan). CONCERT was formed in September 1998; so far, we have achieved quite good accomplishments. We have subscribed to 12 systems with 61 databases available. Members are mainly from national as well as private universities, colleges and junior colleges. In order to promote the use of the electronic resources, one of local national universities asked us to get the journal bibliographic data of MARC formats of each electronic journals or proceedings from the information providers. The university would add the MARC formats to their OPAC system, treating these journals as their collections. Also, they would put in their 856 field the URL site of each journal, so that user can immediately click and browse the journal. This is a value-added service. We want to check with you all and see if you have had similar requests from your users, if you have asked any of the information providers of this service. We also would like to know if you have encountered any problems with any of your information providers with this request. Please let us know of your comments and share with us your experiences. Sincerely yours, Mei-yuh Shih Coordinator CONCERT, Taiwan
