During 1998 and 1999 the University of Melbourne Library evaluated four interfaces for managing electronic journal subscriptions and access. These are OCLC’s ECO, SwetsNet, Ebsco Online and Blackwell’s Electronic Journal Navigator. A small working group of librarians comprised the core of the trial. A set of defined criteria for evaluating the interfaces was used. The paper will report on the experiences of the evaluation and the conclusions reached.
