SERIALST Commercial Digest pilot project: Since June 2008, the SERIALST
moderators have been experimenting with compiling and distributing a
Commercial Digest once a week, on Friday afternoons, with messages
containing informational content from commercial bodies (i.e., publishers,
vendors, agents, etc.). The moderators review submitted messages for
informational content that may interest our subscribers. We reserve the
right to reject messages that are purely for advertising or
product/service solicitation, with little or no informational content
beyond the solicitation, as well as other content that are not within the
scope and purpose guidelines of SERIALST

If you have thoughts or feedback about the Commercial digest, or other
aspects of SERIALST, please let us hear from you.  Contact information for
the SERIALST moderators is at:
