E-Journal Cleanup Currently in Progress

A quick note from the Technical Services Department, where we are now busy rooting out some older e-journal records. One of our routine tasks is to remove records for journal titles for which we no longer have full text access. (As part of this process, many journal titles are added every month as well.)

Due to a technical issue with a vendor we have an unusually large number of records to remove this month. I'm posting a note here because it's going to take our small staff several days to resolve this problem.

In the meantime, you may encounter a message that looks like this when you click through from the catalog to our Full-Text Electronic Journal List screen:
If you get this message, you've stumbled onto one of the records that needs to be removed. My (ambitious) goal is to have this work completed by the end of the week, and I'll post here again when we've gotten the issue resolved.
