Dear Colleagues,

In response to Mitch Turitz's message concerning jake, I wanted to
let you know that CONSER has recognized the potential for jake to
replace 510 data in CONSER records.  Our CONSER A&I/ISSN Issues Task
Force, chaired by Cindy Hepfer, is currently working with Dan Chudnov
and the Faxon Company to develop a means for adding the jake url to
CONSER records.  The plans are still very much in the initial stages
and I can't say anymore about this at the moment.  Just wanted to let
you know that we are excited about the possibilities.

>From the All About Jake link at the jake website:

"In large part, the data currently in jake is already provided by
e-resource providers in some form at their web sites. We explicitly
contact each provider to request their approval for reusing their content
lists and including the information in jake under the GNU GPL ... therefore
anyone to use that data as they wish. The providers we have contacted have
mostly been very interested in the project and agreeable to its
terms; some have even expressed interest in writing their content lists to
a specific format to facilitate jake inclusion, and some expressed
interest in the potential of using jake in their own services."
