I've checked our access to a few of the titles on the list and we have
it, for current and older issues. There were some pages of the CSAS
Bulletin that were missing or misfiled at Wiley. We're using SFX. That
is not an endorsement of the product, by the way, just an FYI.

> This morning, someone in ILL called me because our AnthroSource URL wasn't working for Latin American Anthropology Group Contributions (Vol. 1 1976).  We have all of our AnthroSource URLs listed as http:// (xxxx standing for the title's abbreviation).  I looked at it and got an error message that the page couldn't be found.  I dropped the /loi/xxxx, and was able to connect to AnthroSource.
> When I got there, I discovered that 1) not all of the previous content is on the AnthroSource site anymore, 2) the pdf and html links take the user to Wiley-Blackwell (initially, many of the articles came up with an error message #4090 on the W-B site), 3) the content that is no longer on AnthroSource is available on W-B, but if it is earlier than 1997 we are prompted for a username/password.
> Concerning missing content, here's an example.  With the old version of AnthroSource, we had Vol. 1-6 (1989-94) of Latin American Anthropology Review, now only Vol. 1 is listed on the AnthroSource website (under the title Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology).
