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,
