OCLC sent a message last Thursday about a change that was implemented
yesterday. The full news release about this change is at
http://www.oclc.org/firstsearch/announcements/articlefirst_contentsfirst.htm
. Following are the key elements of the message. I updated Database Locator
records for these three databases to reflect the changes. Rich


FROM OCLC
The OCLC ArticleFirst and OCLC ContentsFirst databases have now been
combined and enhanced with bibliographic records from the OCLC FirstSearch
Electronic Collections Online (ECO) database to provide a single, powerful
serials content resource for library staff and users. Article links for ECO
journals your institution subscribes to are included in ArticleFirst (as
well as in ECO).

ArticleFirst users now have the ability to browse journal tables of contents
(over 12,000 journals), as they have been able to do with the 3,200+
journals in Electronic Collections Online (ECO). This is done by selecting
"Browse Journals and Magazines" upon connection. With the integration of
these two databases, separate access to the ContentsFirst database has been
discontinued. Combining the databases has streamlined the search process,
eliminating the need to go to one database to view the contents of a journal
and a different one to search for articles.

Bibliographic information from the Electronic Collections Online database
has been added to ArticleFirst. If an Electronic Collections Online record
duplicates a record present in the ArticleFirst database, the search
automatically keeps only the Electronic Collections Online record, thus
automatically removing duplicates from the results set. Electronic
Collections Online will remain as a separate database, as well, and will
continue to offer the following options not available to ArticleFirst users:

        limit to subscription
        limit to publisher collections
        limit to subject collections, abstracts, and references

The enhancements bring additional ways to browse the ArticleFirst database,
making it easier and more efficient to discover content.
