Hi all,

I am from UNCG (the previously mentioned library).  In terms of link
resolving, we find that OCLC works pretty well, though I have a few more
problems with it than I did using Serial Solutions at a previous job.  But
I have not noticed a seriously worse performance.  Feel free to contact me
off list if you want to talk more!

Thanks!
