Northwestern University Library's Electronic Collections Committee (ECC) Working Group was charged with reviewing and evaluating aggregator services, publishers of electronic journals, and providers of software to manage these journals, in order to determine if any one aggregator service could meet the electronic journal needs of the Northwestern community. The Working Group created a list of criteria and questions to use in making this evaluation. After careful study, the Working Group made a recommendation as to how Northwestern University Library should plan to proceed in its acquisition of electronic journals. This article summarizes the Group's methodology and conclusions.
