Catalogers are among the worlds most wonderful people, after all their presence
keeps me at the reference desk  instead  of the cat room.
To answer your question seriously, no further info is needed, at least not in
our online system. Make the holdings screen conform and, from the users perspec
tive, you're there.
What AACR2r KFUWELJLKJSH Rev.Ed., may say about CD's-ROM and E-Journals I, chee
rfully, don't know. Have I spouted enough???

The Internet is a gateway to information resources from
next door and around the world: library catalogs,
discussion groups, and a variety of data, bibliographic
and full-text materials. Offered by OHIONET and intended
as a follow-up to last year's highly successful NREN
Conference, this program will provide a practical
hands-on encounter with the Internet. Nationally
known speakers will discuss the wide variety of
resources available and participants will learn
about and use an assortment of new tools, such as
Gopher, WAIS, archie and Veronica, to facilitate
their explorations of the Internet.

Mundane software needs, that is...
 
I need a program that will track subscriptions, create mailing lists,
allow me to enter various information about each subscriber (comp,
library, reg rate, and so on), the program should alert   me when a
subscription is about to run out, or when a renewal notice should be
sent at a given interval to a lost subscriber. Should also keep track
of all correspondance to subscribers.
 
Also need an accounting program that will generate invoices, all usual
reports, not take a year to learn or cost my soul.
 
Both programs will be for a clientele of 1 - 5 thousand. Must run on
IBM Microsoft Windows. - Any suggestions? (The thought of dealing with yet
one or two more new programs gives me the screaming heebie-geebies, and
I somehow feel like I am engaged in an act of almost apostolic faith
when faced with buying anything from the computer industry).

The Scholarly Communications Project of Virginia Tech has a new gopher system.
The gopher is located on borg.lib.vt.edu, port 70.  Four of our regular
titles are available: The Community Services CATALYST, Journal of Technology
Education, Journal of the International Academy of Hospitality Research, and
Modal Analysis.  Modal Analysis and the Journal of Counseling and Development
are provided on an experimental basis.  WAIS support will be added soon for
each title, and a public gopher client may also be provided at a later date.
 
Users of World Wide Web software such as Xmosaic may access our World Wide
Web server.  Currently, a brief document is returned which includes a link
to the gopher system described above.  Hypertext versions of some journal
titles will be added later.  The Universal Resource Locator (URL) for this
resource is http://borg.lib.vt.edu:80/z-borg/www/.
 
Users are encouraged to try out these new resources and send comments to

Lots of magazines are now accepting submissions (even things like
query letters) in electronic format.  Looking through the Writer's
Market for 1993 I noticed that probably 35% or more of the rags take
submissions on disk at least (most say to get in touch with the
magazine to determine the format... my guess is either Microsoft Word
(for either Windoze or Mac) or WordPerfect) or explicitly say to
submit in ASCII, i.e. without formatting at all (or as much as one can
format in ASCII), and some do indeed take input via modem or email.  I
don't think formatting is as big a deal with electronic submissions,
especially for ASCII, though I'm sure editing considerations like
grammar and spelling are as stringent as is the norm.  I'd be
interested to know if some magazines allow author-editing over electronic
means once a piece has been accepted..

About editing electronically after acceptance:  _EJournal_ sometimes
asks an author to smooth out copy after the editors have accepted an
essay "in substance."  If we do significant editorial copy-editing, we
ask authors to approve (or fiddle with) that version.  In a sense,
although we retain editorial "control" of what we publish, we negotiate
the actual text via e-mail. The process is eased by our lack of
deadline; we send each single-essay issue when it is ready, not when a
printer's (or anyone's) schedule says we have to.

(Also posted to PACS-L)
 
Automated Electronic Journal Acquisition: A UNIX Based Approach
 
Automatic acquisition of electronic journals in libraries is critical to the
success of electronic journals.  I first realized this last fall when I was
asked to put together a system to support an electronic newsletter that was
updated almost daily.  Upon review of our existing system, I found that it
simply would not be practical to acquire a daily newsletter in this way.
Having watched the growth of interconnected distributed systems such as gopher
and World-Wide Web, it seemed to me that this is the way electronic
acquisitions should work: acquisition of an electronically distributed journal
or article collection should be automatic.  However, most electronic journals
received at the University Libraries of VPI & SU are received by a special
account via electronic mail and moved from that account to a simple menu
system.  The entire system is based on a help facility for an IBM mainframe,
but the essential ingredient is a knowledgeable person to manage the data.
 
The system I developed is extremely simple to implement on any UNIX system and
requires no human intervention once it is set up.  It uses UNIX mail, gopher
and WAIS along with a few simple shell script programs to manage new issues
automatically.  Here is how it works:
 
A userid is setup for each new electronic journal to be received.  A new
directory is added to the gopher file structure to accommodate the new journal,
and any back issues are added at that time.  In this menu, two special menu
items are required, one for browsing new issues and a second for searching the
current article collection using WAIS.  Using a shell script run by the UNIX
cron program, any new mail for the electronic journal userid is collected
nightly and moved to the gopher file system.  The WAIS index for this title is
also rebuilt so that the new articles or issues are incorporated into the
database.  At some predefined period of time, a second shell script is run by
cron, moving an "expired" subset of the new data to a permanent location in the
gopher menu.
 
 
 E-mail to         Received on UNIX        Moved to new issues directory in
 local userid      mail server             gopher menu by cron executed script
+-----------+     +-----------------+     +-------------------------+
| New Issue |-->  | UNIX spool file |-->  | a gopher data directory |-->
+-----------+     +-----------------+     +-------------------------+
 
     +---------------+     +-------------------------------+
-->  | WAIS database |-->  | Permanent gopher subdirectory |
     +---------------+     +-------------------------------+
      cron calls script     Periodically, cron runs a second script
      to reindex articles   to move articles to a permanent location.
 
 
A system like this could be extended further.  For example, information about
the frequency of publication could be included in a program.  If issues lapsed,
acquisitions could be notified by electronic mail.  Likewise, acquisitions
could be notified of the arrival of each new issue by e-mail.
 
Many assumptions were made:
1. Journals received were distributed by electronic mail.
2. Libraries would be willing to use WAIS for indexing the text.  (Alternately,
   if they have a system running NeXTSTEP, they can use its indexing system.
   However, the main advantage of the NeXT indexing system is its support of
   boolean searching which is now available in some versions of WAIS).
3. Acquisition would take place on UNIX platforms.  (It is highly dependent
   upon the automated cron program and UNIX mail.)
4. The library would be using a gopher menu system for end-user access.
As a result of these assumptions, the methods discussed may work in part or
completely on non-UNIX systems.
 
As an information provider, I know that we need to help libraries lead the way
in the early years of electronic publishing.  Placing more of the workload on
the computer makes sense whenever possible.  Automating the electronic journal
acquisition process is one way libraries can reduce the perceived burden of
managing a new resource that some might consider exotic.  Automatic acquisition
also provides the full benefits of electronic journals to the end-user, such as
timeliness and full text searching capabilities.  Resolving this problem for
libraries will serve to make electronic journals a more attractive format for
end-users.
 
The scripts and crontab entries for this system will be made available through
the Scholarly Communications Project of Virginia Tech anonymous FTP archive at
borg.lib.vt.edu in /pub/ejacq.

This is my first message in this forum so please bear with me!
 
I wonder if anyone can tell me a little more about Project
Gutenburg or at least guide me in the direction of a suitable
server? Somewhere in the dark recesses of my brain I seem
to recall that it is a plan to record all the world's writings
in electronic form, can this be true?
 
Many thanks,
 
Jonathan Clark

   I have heard of this before, and it seems to be a reasonable
proposition to me, so i would say that someday it will happen.
However, the question is, who will do it and how long will it take?

I would like to commend James on a great, yet simple idea.  He is truly using
the electronic medium to it's best advantage.
 
I think the idea of automatic acquistions (both in the gopher/WAIS and Library
sense) is a one that could benefit from some standards.  What James has done
is to create an e-mail enabled application.  With some judicious additions,
this could be made to work alot better.
 
 
In particular, if E-Journal publisher would add certain header lines, this
process could be automated alot more easily.  For example, a line such as:
 
X-EJournal: VPIEJ
 
Would tell the e-mail receiving app that this message was indeed an E-Journal.
This would particularly benefit E-Journals sent to lists like PACS-L or
VPIEJ-L, since the system James has set up would easily be able to tell the
difference between articles and general postings.  No doubt there are many
more things that could be added that could act as commands to scripts.
 
 
I am willing to work with James and anyone else who might be interested in
automated E-Journal acquistions, to come up with useful e-mail header
additions.  I am currently producing an E-Journal (the Journal of Extension,
look for an News release this week!) with e-mail access, so I can add any
header lines quite easily.
 
 
Send e-mail directly to me, if you are interested.

   VPIEJ-L Resources
 
Listserv Archive:
There is a listserv archive available at listserv@vtvm1.cc.vt.edu
(listserv@vtvm1 for BITNET) for VPIEJ-L.  Send a command as the body of a mail
message to get a current filelist: INDEX VPIEJ-L to listserv.  Use the get
command to retrieve items from the archive in a mail message: GET EJ-BIB TXT.
 
FTP Archive:
The Scholarly Communications Project of Virginia Tech has an anonymous FTP
archive which includes the VPIEJ-L archive, along with many electronic texts
and electronic publishing utilities.  To access this site, ftp to
BORG.LIB.VT.EDU and login as userid anonymous.  This FTP archive is available
to the gopher literate through the gopher at gopher.micro.umn.edu.  Select item
5, Internet file server (ftp) sites/, then item 2, Popular FTP Sites via
Gopher/.  We also maintain a very experimental gopher that just points to the
FTP archive, borg.lib.vt.edu (port 70).  Please do NOT add this to your own
site if you are a system's administrator.  We are planning to experiment with
page image delivery with this system and may expand it to a general purpose
gopher in the future.
 
WAIS Source:
The discussion logs for the VPIEJ-L list are searchable via WAIS.  The wais
source may be retrieved from the directory-of-servers by searching for VPIEJ-L,
or by FTP to borg.lib.vt.edu in the pub/WAIS/sources directory.
 
Usenet Gateway:
Subscribers may want to consider reading VPIEJ-L on Usenet.  Check with your
system administrator to see if your site receives bit.listserv.vpiej-l.  If it
does, you can unsubscribe your email account by sending a SIGNOFF VPIEJ-L
command to listserv@vtvm1.cc.vt.edu.  You will still be able to post to the
list by email to vpiej-l@vtvm1.cc.vt.edu.  If your site does not carry this
group, please encourage them to add it.

     VPIEJ-L is a discussion list for electronic publishing issues, especially
those related to Scholarly Electronic Journals.  Topics for discussion include
SGML, PostScript, and other e-journal formats; as well as software and hardware
considerations for creation of, storage, and access to e-journals.  Publishers,
editors, technical staff, programmers, librarians, and end-users are welcome
to join.  One goal of the list is to provide better feedback from users to
creators, so we are very interested in receiving and archival issues.  This
should give those of us involved in publishing an idea as to what distribution
methods work and how end-users are accessing and using these publications.
Current readers of and contributors to VPIEJ-L have discussed readability
and screen display, copyright, and advertising (noncommercial).
 
Archives of VPIEJ-L are available.  A listing may be retrieved by sending a
command INDEX VPIEJ-L to LISTSERV@VTVM1.
 
To subscribe, send the following command to LISTSERV@VTVM1 via mail or
interactive message:
    SUB VPIEJ-L your_full_name
where "your_full_name" is your name.  For example:
    SUB VPIEJ-L Joan Doe
 
Or you may read and post to VPIEJ-L via Usenet in the group
bit.listserv.vpiej-l

The Scholarly Communications Project of Virginia Tech issues a report on a
quarterly basis that covers our various activities and accomplishments.  The
reports are intended for a local audience, but after sharing them with a
fellow electronic publisher who found them useful, I am placing the reports
on the Scholarly Communications FTP archive.  Two reports are available in
Postscript and ASCII format.  I strongly encourage you to retrieve the
postscript version if you can manage it, as there are graphics included which
are essential to the report.
