A miscellany of DLF publication news:
FALL 2003 NEWSLETTERS
Those that are in hand are now up at
Many thanks to Michael Pelikan (Penn State) for editing these, and we look
forward to completing the set soon (apologies if you have turned one in to
Michael recently and you do not see it here -- it is still in the editing
The newsletters are worth reading through in their entirety -- they provide
a wonderful affirmation of how much we are achieving individually and in
partnership, and make the distributed library plans all the more important
The databases of collections and publications, derived from these
newsletters, are being updated by Cassie right now, and will be loaded as
soon as she is finished.
ARCHIVING ELECTRONIC JOURNALS
Linda Cantara (Indiana University) has edited these seven lengthy
Mellon-funded reports from last year, and has provided an introduction.
These are newly released here, and will be available as a printed volume in
the New Year.
DIGITAL LIBRARY AGGREGATION SERVICES
A postscript to last week's note about Martha Brogan's splendid report on
aggregation services -- I noticed at the weekend that it is slow to load the
whole report over a modem, and I will subdivide it later today.
DLF WEB SITE
As I hope you did *not* notice, the DLF and CLIR have moved their websites
from one commercial hosting company to another in recent weeks, to go with a
larger company who can offer us richer services (better web forms for Forum
registration; better listserv programs; better reporting).
Over the Christmas and New Year I will be moving the DLF site to a new web
design, one section at a time. Apologies in advance if you experience any
access problems or aesthetic confusion during this transition -- it will be
done as fast as I can do it.
