The only problem with linking inside of SFX that Mykie and I are aware of right now is the traditional problem of Lexis-Nexis not going directly to the article.
If any of you discover bad links in SFX please report them to Mykie. It is particularly helpful if you spot a bad link when you are connecting from home. You can Cc me for everything if you like, but if an error message mentions EZProxy, then definitely let me know about it.

At the moment we’re trying to figure out why some of these links in SFX are faulty. But even after we get them fixed everyone should realize that for any given journal there could be this disparity.
At the Ref Desk we have always treated the catalog record as the definitive source for our journal holdings. We should continue to do so with the understanding that SFX does contain some ‘extras’ that are not presently accounted for in the catalog record. As you can see from Mykie’s message below these may be worked into the catalog at some point in the future.

Subject: RE: Why are Open Source Journals Insisting to be Proxied in SFX?
Anything that is “free” in SFX is not cataloged in Voyager. Perhaps that’s something Bridgette and I can look into in the future, but for now, we’re concentrating on pd. things. She’s still working on the recent JSTOR collections we purchased.

When you are searching in EBSCOhost and wish to select items for printing, e-mailing, or exporting you need to click on "add to folder" for each item and then run those operations after clicking into the folder.
At the moment the folder is not saving items that are clicked on. You will notice the when you try to connect to individual database such as AGRICOLA, ERIC, etc. However, the folder works fine when you use the default article search box on the library's home page.
This has been reported at other institutions, so it is system-wide bug that EBSCO is aware of and which they have made a top priority to fix.

Also, please remind them that they must wear a Student Worker badge located in the drawer with their time cards. They should wear this badge when they are on the job.
If there are any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me. Thanks for your help.

In my opinion, the best online source for both documents is at the National Archives Charters of Freedom page:
Just wanted to give you the heads up that we may have a lot of students asking about these documents at the ref desk and suggest a link to point students to.
