We are very grateful for OCLC's generous support and would like to acknowledge that publicly. FWIW, I suggested the inclusion of ticTOCs RSS feed data in the survey OCLC sent out two weeks ago, and less than a week later, OCLC rolls out the improved service. Excellent! [ As an aside, in LibX, we are changing the way we use the service; previously, we were looking up all ISSNs on any page a user visits; we are now retrieving the metadata if the user actually hovers over the link. Not that OCLC complained - but CrossRef did when they noticed > 100,000 hits per day against their service for DOI metadata lookups. In fairness to CrossRef, they are working on beefing up their servers as well. ] - Godmar & Annette for Team LibX.
