I don't know from whence the question about electronic journals came,
nor from whence came your response. I just joined the Serials
Discussion List yesterday, and today your message appeared. I had
assumed it came via that list, and that thus you were subscribed to it,
but apparently not. We subscribed by simply logging in to e-mail and
in the spot where you send To: You write listserv@uvmvm. bitnet.
Then in the message area you write: subscribe serialst Colleen
Thorburn . It worked for us. Good luck. --Joyce Gartrell, Head,
