When I read Serialst this morning, the thought crossed my  mind
"Free The Electronic Journals!" and I realized that the old
"funny" about the student who upon reading "Bound Journals"
wrote the word free in front of the word Bound. I think this
took place in the sixties. Perhaps this newsflash about allowing
ILLs from electronic journals is a step in the right direction,
to insure good access to information for everyone.

But then, I'd also like to live in a world that doesn't live by
the law of money... <g>

*  THE LARGEST PUBLISHER of scientific journals has decided to
   allow libraries that subscribe to its electronic journals to
   fill interlibrary-loan requests for articles from them.
