Re: Ebsco A-Z Overlap Analysis Carol Green 16 Jan 2014 19:08 UTC

I've never had much luck with it....can't even recall the last time I tried it.  Tried it just now and although it did work, it's very slow and clunky.

Hi Rob,

I haven’t had much luck with this either.  I think I have in the past run an analysis of more than a few resources so I think the system is supposed to be able to do it.  But I have found it to always be very slow and also to crash often.  I just tried it now and I cannot even get it to initiate an analysis.  It just keeps spinning and spinning.  So, I do not think it is a local issue.

Subject: [SERIALST] Ebsco A-Z Overlap Analysis

Hi all,

  Does anyone use Ebsco A-Z overlap analysis?  I rarely get to complete an analysis without it crashing.  I'm just wondering if it is a local issue or the system can't handle comparisons of more than a few resources.
