Dear Ms Ferris

University libraries are very concerned about the integrity of electronic
archives and access to back issues. Therefore, it is very unfortunate,
that you don't say anything about the consequences of the selling of HPP
to SAGE. I would suggest that both SAGE and IOP in the next days inform
their customers how this transition is planned. I'd find it very
unconvenient (polite expression for unacceptable) if access through IOP
really ceased in mid march, with no transition period. This will probably
mean that many libraries will be cut of from access for quite some time
(the situation in especially complicated because they are available
through 6 intermediaries). To ensure that information will be distributed
broadly, I will forward my reply to liblicense-l, lis-e-journals and

Thank you very much in advance!

Best regards,
Bernd-Christoph Kaemper, Stuttgart University Library
