Re: Planning for Electronic Journals Linda Gould 26 Sep 1991 20:17 UTC

At the University of Washington Libraries, we are going to begin
examining the same question in the very near future, but I have nothing to
send you as of today EXCEPT, I have in hand a May 28, 1991 report from
Virginia Polytech Inst. and State Univ., done by a Task Force on
Electronic Journals there.  I suggest you request a copy from Paul
Gherman, the director.  He sent one to all ARL directors.  Also, since we
are looking at the same issues, I would appreciate your forwarding to me
any responses you get that do not get posted to everyone, but only to you.
 Thanks in advance.  Linda Gould, Associate Director for Library
Collections, University of Washington Libraries, Seattle,:
