Electronic Resources and

While the electronic/ILL future is being discussed, please do not ignore 
the rights of authors (which many publishers do).   Remember that while 
"scholarly publications" do not share their income with authors, more general 
publications (including The New York Times and the Boston Globe) should be, 
and are trying to get away with not doing so.  It would be very helpful if 
librarians on this listserv would include the issue of "rights grabs" from 
authors when they are figuring out the right thing to do.  If you would like 
more information about this, I'll be glad to provide it.
