Re: How Does Your Library Handle Electronic Serials? A General Survey

I would like to submit my response to your questionnaire but when I go to
send, I get the response that I have not filled out question for, which I
have, and then that there is some other error.  I tried to enter my email
address but then you ask for a password, and there is no password to enter.

It's a good survey and we would like to particpate.
