Subject: preservation of electronic information

Hello Group,

I have been getting a very enthusiastic response to my questionnaire
regarding electronic information and how institutions and individuals
are dealing with the preservation issues involved.

In order to acquire some context for my study, I would like to find
out which resources users use the most or depend on the most.

I am interested in which _types_ of resources you use the most
(listservs, e-mail, electronic journals, online databases, etc.) as
well as any specific resources that you consider to be the most useful
or important.  If you are a librarian, I would be interested in how
various patrons (faculty, grads, undergrads, general public, grade
schoolers) use the electronic resources, particularly networked
resources, that you provide.

Thanks for the enthusiasm regarding my questionnaire, and keep them
coming in!  They are very useful!  And be sure to tell me how you and
your patrons (when applicable) use electronic resources.  I really
appreciate this.

Please reply directly to me!

Thanks in advance,

Scott Gillies
