Yankee Rights Management

Those of you on the North American academic library scene may be
interested in the following note I received from Glen Secor of Yankee
Book Peddler.  We have made the link on the LIBLICENSE resources section.
Although he didn't ask me to do it, I thought I would share the notice
of the service with you, especially those who use Yankee as one of their
book suppliers.
