Dear Colleague:

        The following one-page questionnaire will take about five minutes of
your time. I am cross-posting this in hopes of getting a good response from all
types of libraries. I have also mailed the survey to the heads of
acquisitions at all ARL libraries so if you are in an ARL library you have an
option of how to respond, should you choose to. The paper for which this
survey is being conducted will also be made available, first at the Feather
River Institute this May and later as a published article. No institutions
will be identified by name and any budget information provided will be held
       If at all possible, please return the completed survey to me by April 13,
1996, via FAX, e-mail, or USPS. Thank you!
