---------- CONTENTS ----------

62.1 Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins (LWW) print and online subscriptions

HARRASSOWITZ met at the Frankfurt Book Fair with Dean M. Vogel, President
& CEO of Ovid Technologies, Barbara M. Colton, Executive Vice President of
LWW, Mary Fugle, Director of Library & Trade Relations of LWW, and Maureen
Stotler Connors, Vice President, Customer Service, Circulation and
Distribution of LWW to discuss how we can cooperate in order to meet our
customers' needs.

On October 15, 2002, Mary Fugle issued the following statement to
subscription agents:

"Upon further consideration of our intentions announced in June of this
year [Reported in HARRASSOWITZ News 58.1, August 5, 2002], Lippincott
Williams and Wilkins has determined that it is in our mutual customers'
best interest to allow subscription agents to handle the billing for both
their print journals and their electronic access for the 2003 renewal
period, providing the agent's customer requests such assistance. . .
Customers may obtain electronic access to the LWW Society titles via any
of the historically available platforms.  All non-Society titles will have
electronic access on the Ovid platform.  Print subscriptions will be
handled by LWW, as in the past."

So, libraries may continue to order their LWW print and online
subscriptions from HARRASSOWITZ.  As we understand, the major change is
that the LWW e-journals will now be supplied by Ovid rather than the LWW
platform.  Most of the LWW Society journals are also available through
HighWire Press.

Contact Ulrike Moeller, umoeller@harrassowitz.de, for further information
about ordering Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins print and electronic
subscriptions through HARRASSOWITZ.
