Question: Journal Finder Re-name?


Since you guys are so good at coming up with link names, I have another question to pose.

What's another good name for Journal Finder?

As you know Journal Finder is the tool we use to find where the fulltext of a journal is located by typing in the name of the journal.

As you also probably know, people confuse this and think they can type keywords into Journal Finder to get articles on their topic, like they would use a database. Another misuse is typing in the name of an article, author, or discipline and expecting to get articles.

So, what would you call Journal Finder to make every one's life a little easier?

Here are some ideas:
-Journal Index
-Journal Indexer
-Directory of Journals
-Journal Directory
-List of Journals
-Journal List
- or one of these ideas with A-Z included somewhere, e.g. Journal Index A-Z or maybe even Journal Finder A-Z or Journals A-Z.

One More: Index of Journal Holdings

Something about it sounds super official and it would be difficult to confuse with a database.

I'm not very good at coming up with names but Mike sure is, I would agree that Journal Directory or List of Journals are good names for them, not that the others where bad.

Find a Journal.

Journal Finder is fine with me. I guess the patrons are becoming incompetent. And they are at a university? What a joke

Mike came up with some good names. "Journal full-text search" might work.
