Dear all,

I am a student at the University of Twente in the Netherlands. At the
moment I am busy with a small investigation for my professor concerning the
'serials crisis'.

As for the moment I have collected enough data on the actual rising of
prices, but the information I am still missing is which kind of action
already has been taken by which organization to counter the current state
of affairs (meaning the continual rising of serial prices). Anybody who
could supply me with more information on this, please do so. I would be
quite grateful. Any other general information on the problem would be
welcome too.

I hope I informed you sufficiently, I would also be happy to supply you
with more details and I am looking forward to your reply,

Sincerely yours,

Erwin van Veen,
University of Twente,
