When we first got Serials Solutions we argued endlessly about their terrible subjects. We didn't understand why they wouldn't let us add our own subjects. We asked for an enhancement but that was years ago and we just gave up. We added MESH and LC and figured having two subject systems couldn't hurt even though it is still terrible. Maybe now that they are Proquest I should complain higher up the food chain.

I opened a ticket, but the answers I'm getting are not only confusing, they are unsatisfactory (thus far). I wanted to ask here to see if everyone gets similar results. I wanted to know the answer to the common question "What journals on <subject> do you have? QUESTION: Advanced Emergency Nursing Journal appears in an AtoZ list of titles, but not when searched, e.g. Subject=NURSING? ANSWER: this title is listed under MeSH as in "Emergency Nursing", which is a subject heading that we are not using at this time. I do know of any plans to expand that, and unless MeSH were to list the title under the much broader subject of Nursing, the title would not be discoverable. This is incomprehensible to me. What is the purpose of searching by SUBJ if it does not retrieve the full list of NURSING journals?? I'm missing something and don't know how or whether to pursue further. Anyone?
