 This must be a plot to drive catalogers mad!  Remember the Disney World
 supplement to Newsweek (or was it Time?) discussion?  At least that supplement
 went to everybody! Different profiles will somehow have to be indicated in
 holdings formats on shared databases, won't they?

This is librarian headache number 3124 and counting.  There is no way to deal
with this one until the entire text goes electronic I guess.  Craig

  Our students have recently been provided with access to ABI-Inform
on CD and, as a result, have been putting through large numbers of
requests for articles in 'Business Week, Industrial edition'.

  I 'phoned the British contact for 'Business Week', who informed me
that there is an industrial/technology edition and an international
edition. We receive the international edition - the industrial edition
is only available in the U.S. We have no hope at all of obtaining a
subscription to the industrial edition, and now have a lot of very
unhappy students who thought that their problems had all been solved
by the very interesting articles in the industrial edition.

   Although the numbering of the different editions are the same for
each date, the contents obviously vary. I for one would appreciate
some pressure on the publishers - who believe apparently that the
industrial edition is only of interest to people in the States - for
the publication of one edition of this journal.
