More on adding OA journal records to the library catalogue

The Glasgow School of Art Library is adding OA journal records to its catalogue.  From its blog today:

We've just added Library Catalogue records for over 75 peer-reviewed open-access journals in the arts and humanities....Peer-reviewed and mostly published by professional organisations and bodies or university research departments, they provide quality and authoritative articles on a range of subjects. Subjects covered include new media and technology, anthropology, philosophy, architecture, art and design, psychology and cultural theory.

You'll now find hyperlinks for all these journals via a keyword or title search in the Library Catalogue.

Comment.  Libraries have been doing this since DOAJ started providing the records,  But I haven't heard much about it since the ERIL discussion in 2003.  Has it declined, or just become so routine that it's rarely mentioned?
