Abstract

We present a comparative description of how two Scottish academic libraries provide electronic journal services. These libraries shared the perception that the diversity of the proliferating electronic journal scene created confusion in the eyes of the would-be e-journal user. This in turn gave rise to a separate attempt in each institution to create a unified common interface for the local e-journal portfolio. Points of similarity and difference between the two separate systems are noted. Some thoughts for the future of the e-journal format are provided, based on these libraries' experience in common of mounting their own local services.
