test version of a web form to search electronic journals.  The test

The Electronic Resources Project began in April 1994. One of our
main goals is to improve access to electronic journals in the fields of 
library, information and archival sciences.  Using our method, users 
can do Boolean searches of full text, title, author, and other 
categories on a per-article basis, and then select and retrieve 
articles from a list of hits.  Search terms are highlighted within 
the text.  We achieve this result by marking up journal issues using
SGML and a DTD we developed, loading the issues into an Open 
Text database, and providing for searching through a web form.

Our electronic journal collection of about 30 titles is also catalogued 
and searchable through UTCAT, the University of Toronto union 
catalogue and accessible through hot links in the 856 field of the 
bibliographic records when using a brief or full display and the web 
interface at:

A final report on the project is scheduled for the end of the year.
