Re: Revisions to AIP*s Online Journal License

Ms. Orr,

Thank you for posting the information about AIP's policy for using
electronic content for ILL!  A group of us has created a Web site at which
publishers can share their ILL policies, with the aim of collecting this
information in one place to save time and effort for library staff.  The
site is at this address:

I invite you to consider joining other major publishers and posting your
ILL policies at this site.  It would be great to have them there.  Thanks
very much!
