Seriously, a database providing its title list in a pretty table in a *pdf*? Why do they hate us?

copy-paste to spreadsheet? -
You might do something wrong like analyze it or something when your only right is to read. If we are feeling generous. -
Send it to me, Deborah- I'll crack it open for you. :) -

Attempted the copy/paste thing, but it didn't work. Thanks, David, but the need's passed - was wanting to sort by publisher to get a rough count to help demonstrate to a student why one has to search in multiple databases if one's doing a thorough literature review, but it looks like the rest of the semi-data I dug up was convincing enough. -
(In related news, I could get tired of explaining to research students why there's no One True Database that will find everything they need. I always feel like I'm taking away their cookies.) -
Tell them there is One True Database but the current copyright rules and business models have preemptively carved it up and distributed it across several overlapping database products. -
Aren't those new fangled discovery systems meant to be the One True Database? *ducks* -
