I hope you share these.

At this point we've not done an announcement, per se.  We have put "Continued Online" shelf labels on the affected titles.

Subject: [SERIALST] Print subscription cancellations - Communicating to users

Greetings SERIALST-ers,

Apologies in advance for duplicate postings...

After months of research and meetings, we've decided to convert from print to electronic subscriptions wherever possible.  The formal transition will take place in 2008 when we stop receiving our print issues through our subscription vendor.

Now, the real work of planning the transition commences!  So, I have a favor to ask...would anyone be willing to share / send me samples (electronic or print copies) of the advertising that you did, newsletter articles that you wrote, items you posted on your web site, etc., when you announced your print subscription cancellations?

I don't want to steal anyone's work, but instead want to gather a pool of ideas that I can use to craft our own messages.

Many thanks in advance.
