         New Additions to _Just-in-Time(sm): Electronic Delivey Services_

   I am pleased to announce the following major additions to  _Just-in-Time(sm): Electronic Delivery Services_ , Web-based clearinghouse of services, products, and research devoted to 'pay-per-view- access to electronic journal articles

 I. CatchWord

There are now over 350 journals online from 27 publisher clients around the world." Current publishers include the American Institute of Biological Sciences, Carfax Publishing, the Institution of Chemical Engineers, Plenum Publsihing, Royal Society of Chemistry, Taylor and Francis, among several others.

      This is one of the largest gateways to electronic journals
of which I am aware.

II. Science /AAAS

  "For US$10.00 you can have access .... to all content in Science Online or ScienceNOW for 24 hours."

III. Documents Direct (Leeds University Library)

    This is an  *extremely* interesting research project at the Leeds University Library
which seeks "to investigate and evaluate new mechanisms for the discovery and delivery of full text journal articles and similar material to academic staff and researchers of ... [Leeds] University" as a substitute for print ownership [WOW!]

        I am greatly interested in *other* projects such a Documents Direct
that may be underway or under consideration by other libraries for possible inclusion in my next update of _Just-in-Time(sm)_ BTW, _Just-in-Time(sm) is located at

       Thanks again to all who responded to my previous
call for candidates!

          As Always, Any and All contributions, queries, critiques, comments, questions, concerns, etc., etc. regarding this
post are Most Welcome.
