    SUMMARY. In recent years, an increasing number of electronic journals
    have embedded audio, video, and other multimedia within their
    publication to augment their usefulness. In addition, some have further
    enhanced access and use with a variety of 'eclectic' features,
    functionalities, and content, such as advanced navigation; font, format,

    options; and reader participation. In general, most cataloging records,
    however, do not reflect such components, depriving users of the
    necessary information and instruction that could facilitate use. A
    variety of recommendations and options are reviewed as possible

       _Seize the E!: The Eclectic Journal and Its Ramifications_ is
    available at:
