ROAD is a union catalog of journals maintained by each national ISSN registry. There should be a link on ROAD to submit evidence for an update to the relevant country’s ISSN Registry.

Collective wisdom,

Does anyone have any information regarding the upkeep and maintenance of URLs and coverage for the resources included in ROAD?  We have an ExLibris Alma collection activated and are receiving a number of error reports from frustrated faculty and students.  I thought the titles in this directory were being more carefully vetted and maintained than many of the so-called “free” collections available in many of our link resolver services.

We will likely deactivate this collection as we do not have the staff resources to keep reporting errors to the link resolver support teams.

Thank you for any information or insight.
