Universal and repurposed holdings information — Emerging initiatives and projects

What volumes or issues of a journal have been published?  Are they indexed with abstracts?  Who holds that journal, and what volumes or issues are held? Has anyone preserved it? Publishers, A & I services, libraries, and researchers often find their work interrupted—perhaps even stopped—by the lack of holdings information around a title. Whether the question concerns retrospective print content, born digital, or digitized content, the answer to these questions is not easily found. The forum will explore the current demand for universal publication history as well as new initiatives seeking to collect holdings information and preservation details.
