I do not care why.
When I look for the online version of Cell in our catalog (journal title), it's entry number 30.
Searching for Scientific American online by title -- number 76.
Philosophy (online) is entry number SIX HUNDRED AND FORTY ONE. (search by journal title)
I don't care about the cataloging rules. I don't care about the serials solutions load. I don't care. All I know is that people choose google and Amazon over the library catalog for good reason -- it's almost impossible to find things in our OPAC.
I gave a talk about how difficult it was to find PRINT serials in the OPAC at ALA in Miami in 1994 - almost fifteen years ago. I feel like I'm in clip from "Ground Hog Day".... The journals are online, but it's still just as hard to find them in the catalog.
All done, all forgiven
