Subject: printed journal goes electronic

     I would like to post a brief notice that might be of interest to
     serial and reference librarians.

     The Proceedings of the Ocean Drilling Program Initial Reports ISSN:
     1096-2158 (IR) and Scientific Results ISSN: 1096-7451 (SR) volumes are
     now available in electronic format on the WWW. See the bottom of this
     message for a sample table of contents.

     There is NO subscription charge to access this material. The site is
     open to the public.

     Material is posted in Acrobat PDF format, and if possible, the
     Abstracts for each paper are posted in HTML for easy browsing. Each
     volume has a an HTML table of contents, and most contain additional
     data sets in ASCII format.

     The Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) consists of basic research into the
     history of the ocean basins and the nature of the crust beneath the
     ocean floor. For more information about the Ocean Drilling Program see
     our web site:
     For information specifically about the ODP Publications see:

     The Initial Reports volume for Leg 176, which will be published late
     this fall, is the first IR volume that will be available in
     electronic-only format, both in CD-ROM and on the WWW. The redesign of
     the existing material to make better use of the capabilities of the
     WWW is currently in progress.

     The Program is also sponsoring a program to donate sets of the
     Proceedings printed/CD-ROM volumes to qualified libraries. For more
     information about this, please feel free to contact me.

     If there are other librarians who would be interested in learning of
     this site, please forward this message. If you are aware of other
     lists that might be good sites to distribute this information, I'd
     love to hear about them.

     Thank you very much for your time.
