RFI utilises the latest in computer software to produce the 2D and 3D
images required by today's businesses and industry for incorporation in
DTP layouts, manuals for instruction and maintenance, information sheets
and advertising. Working from orthographic information, photographs and
sketches and using Black & White or Colour where appropriate, we produce
simple graphics as surely as complicated illustrations.
 
Over the last fifteen years we have been supplying illustrations for a
number of purposes including;
Foam and Fire Fighting Equipment Manufacturers' Diagrams
Nuclear Power Stations Safety Reports
Underground Transport Parts Lists (IPC's)
Architectural and Estate Overviews
Agricultural and Topographical Information Material
Heating Engineers' Exploded Views
Oil and Petroleum Producers Literature

          Re:  Multiple versions for remote access serials
 
          Date: Jan. 3, 1994
 
               The authors of this posting are associated with various
          institutions in CONSER.  We are considering some of the problems
          associated with cataloging remote access serials and would like
          to generate discussion on the issues described below.  We plan
          future postings to solicit input on various areas of cataloging
          these serials.  Please reply to your listserv.
 
               How many catalog records should be created for remote access
          serials that appear in multiple electronic versions? What
          criteria should be used for deciding when variations in file
          content, hardware or software requirements, or intellectual
          content necessitate separate records?
 
               In assigning the ISSN, NSDP has considered World Wide Web
          versions of a title to be separate bibliographic entities from
          plain ASCII versions and has thus created separate records and
          assigned separate ISSN.  This decision is based on the fact that
          World Wide Web documents can link to, or "contain" a variety of
          file types, -- sound, image, video -- as part of a given issue.
          There are also differences in hardware or software requirements.
 
               What is to be done with other versions that seem to be less
          different?  How do we treat remote access serials that are
          available in different text formatting versions (plain ASCII,
          WordPerfect, and Postscript, for example).
 
               How many records are necessary to serve the needs of local v
          shared cataloging environments?
 
               What other suggestions do you have for treating versions of
          remote access serials?

From:         Jane-Ellen Long 
Subject:      Re: REMOTE ACCESS SERIALS
 
Regina Reynolds et al. ask: What criteria should be applied in determining
when one version of a remote-access serial differs enough from another to
require a separate cataloguing record?
 
I would suggest that variation in content could be the determining factor,
since that would be central to the user's decision to choose one version
over another (whereas ability to access is what Aristotle would call
accidental). As the CONSER post suggests, an HTML version with hot links
and graphics differs substantively from a straight ASCII text, thus would
call for a separate record. A WordPerfect file and a Postscript file would
presumably contain the same information (possibly, in both cases, including
graphics) and thus would not call for separate records.
 
A more problematic distinction may be that between sites of
collections/documents that are fixed once mounted and those that permit
authors to correct and revise their work after the initial "publication."
This process is expensive enough that it is a non-issue in paper
publishing, but the ease of electronic revision seems to be inspiring hopes
for this situation to develop in cyberspace. Where,then, would you draw the
line between a publication and a database?

     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.CC.VT.EDU
 
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

I'm looking for examples of electronic journals that are indexed by
conventional
indexing and abstracting services, for instance Chemical Abstracts, BIOSIS, etc
 
LIS ejournals/ seem not to be indexed by LISA or Information Science Abstracts.
Some PACS Review articles seem to have been indexed by Library Literature, but
PACS Review doesn't appear in the list of journals indexed. Ulrich only lists a
few ejournals/, mostly where there is a print version.

Subject:      Indexing and abstracting of e-journals
 
This is in reply to Alastair Smith's query regarding coverage of electronic
journals by conventional indexing and abstracting services.
 
Mathematical Reviews covers the following journals, essentially
cover-to-cover. This means the papers in them will in general be
listed in our index, and given either an abstract taken from the
summary or a signed review by one of our reviewers.
 
Ulam Quarterly
Electronic Journal of Differential Equations
Electronic Transactions on Numerical Analysis
Electronic Journal of Combinatorics
New York Journal of Mathematics
International Mathematics Research Notices
 
From the following two electronic journals we have taken only a few
papers for review:
 
Complexity International
Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research
 
Please let me know if there are any other titles in our area of interest
that I have not mentioned.

Alistair, the Online Journal of Current Clinical Trials is indexed by
MEDLINE. The Journal is only available online, from OCLC.

Subject:      ANNOUNCING:  CRISTAL-ED Listserv
 
(This message is being posted to a number of listservs, which may
cause people to receive duplicate messages)
 
School of Information and Library Studies
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI
 
This is an exciting time at the School of Information and Library Studies
(SILS) at the University of Michigan. With the assistance of the W. K.
Kellogg Foundation, SILS has embarked on the Kellogg Coalition on
Reinventing Information Science, Technology, and Library Education
(CRISTAL-ED), a five-year project to reinvent such education to meet the
changing needs of information professionals. Determined to radically
change its instructional program, SILS plans to facilitate development of
a international, multidisciplinary consortium of schools to define new
areas of professional specializations to serve society's needs for
information access and use.
 
To garner a wide range of opinions, exchange ideas, and learn from others
involved in comparable activities, SILS will begin a moderated LISTSERV
named CRISTAL-ED on Friday, January 20, 1995. Initially, the LISTSERV
discussion will focus on the vision of the new information and library
studies (ILS) education, and then target planning, prototyping, and
implementing new core curricula for such education.
 
This is the right time for Kellogg CRISTAL-ED. It is a time of both
unprecedented need and opportunity to provide individuals and
organizations with access to information. We recognize the growing need
for information professionals who can:
 
o       Grasp a holistic view of information systems; that is,
professionals who understand users of information, are committed to
information organization and preservation, and can use and shape current
and emerging digital systems technologies.
 
o       Commit themselves to the organization and preservation of
information; that is, professionals who can lead in hybrid environments
that feature both print and digital technologies.
 
o       Transform organizations with the aid of information technology.
Graduates of the new educational program will introduce technology into
information-intensive organizations for the purpose of fundamentally
transforming the organization's processes, products, and services.
 
We aspire to educate a professional with broad competency and a holistic
view of information systems. To accomplish this, the Kellogg CRISTAL-ED
Project has the following objectives:
 
1.      Reinvent the core curriculum for information and library studies.
 
2.      Define new ILS specializations.
 
3.      Create a distributed community of faculty and practitioners
(collaboratory) to deliver the new professional education.
 
4.      Build "living" laboratories in information-intensive
organizations to serve citizens, faculty, and students. These pilot
projects will provide realistic learning experiences for students,
faculty, and practitioners, and will provide the basis for larger-scale
digital libraries and collaboration systems.
 
We invite you to join the Kellogg CRISTAL-ED LISTSERV discussion and work
together to discover the knowledge and skills for a new academic program
that is committed to producing leaders who will create, organize, manage,
and apply new forms of libraries and information environments to meet
human needs. Not only will we feature discussions that parallel project
activities, but we will devote time to promising ideas that arise during
focused discussions. Feel free to subscribe and unsubscribe from the
LISTSERV as time permits or to follow topics in your areas of expertise
or interest. SILS faculty will post course outlines and lists of
questions to stimulate the discussion of new topics.
 
A calendar of LISTSERV discussions follows:
 
Dates                   Topics
-------                           ---------
Jan. 20 to 30   Envisioning information-intensive environments in the
year 2015.
 
Jan. 31 to Feb. 13      Identifying the knowledge and skills that
graduates of ILS schools must have to effect change and transformation in
future information-intensive environments.
 
Feb. 14 to 28   Identifying components of a core curriculum for ILS programs.
 
March 1 to 13   Organization of Information Resources in the core curriculum.
 
March 14 to 28  Information Technology in the core curriculum.
 
After March 28  To be announced.
 
To support the discussion of the first area -- Envisioning
information-intensive environments in the year 2015 -- we will extract
pertinent passages from the proposal to the Kellogg Foundation and post a
list of questions. To familiarize yourself with Kellogg CRISTAL-ED
generally, we invite you to visit the CRISTAL-ED Home Page. (The URL is
http://sils.umich.edu/ Publications/CRISTALED/KelloggHomePage.html/.)
 
For participants who have no access to World Wide Web documents, we will
feature Home Page information in LISTSERV postings and make lengthy
documents available through LISTSERV transactions and FTP. New topics
that emerge in the course of the listserv discussion that do not directly
pertain to the scheduled topic for discussion will be introduced to the
discussion when activity on the scheduled topic wanes. They may also be
added to the calendar to a later date. SILS will evaluate the listserv in
early summer 1995 to determine the future of its direction and content.
 
To subscribe to the CRISTAL-ED LISTSERV, send the following message on
the first line of an electronic mail message:
 
        To: majordomo@sils.umich.edu
 
The body of your electronic message should contain the following phrase:
 
        subscribe cristal-ed
 
We hope you will become a participating member in the Kellogg Coalition
on Reinventing Information Science, Technology, and Library Education --
an international, multidisciplinary collaborative consortium to define
new professional specializations to serve society's needs for information
access in the rapidly merging age of digital data, information and
knowledge. We look forward to your participation.

      -- The Journal of Performance Studies - T144 (Winter 1994) --
 
  TDR is a quarterly journal that explores the diverse world of performance.
  How does this relate to you? The journal emphasizes the intercultural,
  inter-disciplinary and spans numerous geographical areas and historical
  periods. TDR addresses performance issues of every kind: theatre, music
  dance, entertainment, media, sports, politics, aesthetics of everyday
  life, games, play and ritual. TDR is for people in the performing arts,
  the social sciences, academics, activists and theorists -- anyone
  interested in thinking about the "performance" paradigm.
 
  The journal is edited by Richard Schechner of the Department of
  Performance Studies, New York University, and is published quarterly
  by The MIT Press. Although TDR is not yet an electronic journal, you
  can browse through sample articles available on-line through the
  Electronic Newsstand and order via e-mail from The MIT Press (see
  directions below). Check out our table of contents!

Subject:      advice needed on e-book authoring software
 
Hi VPIEJ-L-members,
 
I am currently preparing a project involving the creation of an electronic
supplement to a monthly business magazine. The supplement should accompany
the printed magazine on diskette and have a hypertext/media format, capable
of linking text and graphics-files.
 
For this e-magazine project I am looking for a suitable hypermedia authoring
software package, capable of compiling hypermedia-files to an
self-extractable .EXE-file and of creating hypermedia documents which
can be opended on a DOS-platform without needing Windows.
I am familiar with NeoBook from OSCS Software Development, which meets most
of these requirements, but doesn't really create documents with a
magazine-like appearance.
 
For this reason, I am looking for an e-pub authoring program similar to
packages like NeoBook, but which creates more HTML-like pages: pages with a
traditional magazine lay out.
Ideally, the e-magazine should consist of HTML-pages, which can be read
without needing a HTML-browser with WinSock to access the document.
 
For this reason, I am looking for any kind of information on
hypermedia-authoring software which is capable of producing
such e-publications.
I am sure that some of you out there have looked for similar software
packages on the Net or elsewhere.
So, if anyone has info on these kind of programs or can point me to
FTP-sites with e-pub programs which are better suited to this task than
NeoBook is, could you please let me know where I can find/order it?
Alternatively, I am also interested in info on simple HTML-browsers which
can be used off-line to view HTML-pages, without the need to load Winsock
or some other SLIP/PPP packet switcher.
 
Please mail your response to this list or to my e-mail
address (kerstens@iaehv.nl). Any reply to this message is
appreciated. Thanks in advance.
 
Regards,
 
Ronald Kerstens

Hi, I'm new to this list, and peripherally interested in electronic
publishing.  Out of curiosity, I'm wondering if anyone could direct me to
the most recent and most thorough listing of e-journals available on the
'Net.  I'm interested primarily in those with free subscriptions, but I'd
welcome any suggestions that would save me having to wade around through a
thousand URLs on the Web.  Thanks.

I regret very much that only two viewpoints are represented in this
panel: that of the librarians and that of commercial information
producers/providers. Furthermore, I *resent* seeing these commercial
providers taken as sole representatives of a whole sector that also
includes university presses, learned societies and, also the struggling
group fighting to shift a paradigm that has given us $ 10 000/yr
subscriptions. It would also have been interesting to include a
librarian from another nafta country, such as Mexico, for example.
With the recent devaluation of the peso, and the constant erosion of
the Canadian dollar, what do you think our librarians think of these
trends.
 
In short, I fear that this panel will be very limited in its outlook,
and I am very surprised that no echo from the recent ARL-AAUP meeting
seems to appear here.
 
Any comment anyone else on this list?

Dear list-members
 
I'm working on an electronic cataloque on windows for different software
products. Therefore I'm looking for a EP-software with the possibility to
integrate links to demonstration software, in order that the user can only
click on the picture of the product and gets into the demo-version.
 
All this should run on windows and should offer the possibility to change
the dialogue language in either french or german. Of course the catalogue
should be searchable by different categories (hardware, software, apple,
peripherie, etc..)

I've been looking into the same kind of software for inclusion in CD-ROMs
that accompany books.  There are several programs that can display info in a
self executing Windows or mac program, but the problem comes when you try to
link to external programs.  That seems to be a "next version" thing.
 
You could look into WordPerfect Envoy (http://www.wordperfect.com), Adobe
Acrobat (http://www.adobe.com/Acrobat/Acrobat0.html) or No Hand Solutions
Common Ground (tel. 800-598-3821).

I am personally not very in tune with what transpires at ALA meetings.
These organizers may not be in touch with the strong undercurrent
of "author-centered" view of scholarly publishing, as represented by
P. Ginsparg and a number of mathematicians who attended the recent
meeting organized by MSRI at Berkeley.
 
It is my own personal view that while totally free-of-charge publications
(electronic) will not be the norm, the author-centric view will have
a decided influence in getting us away from the present intractable
cost escalations.
 
Yes, it would be nice if somebody who might agree would speak to
the assembled.

We have received a number of messages and voicemails about whether
NewJour-L still exists.
 
NewJour-L has, indeed, been the moderated announcement forum for new
Internet journals, magazines, and newsletters.  From August 1993 to late
December 1994, it ran on the listproc at the American Mathematical
Society.  However, its large size (1600?) and a configuration of the ams
.sendmail function didn't seem to work out well -- i.e., NewJour-L kept
looping and crashing the system and had to be hand-held to avoid
problems.  We are very appreciate to the AMS, particularly Kevin Curnow,
for all their help with this project.
 
NewJour-L was down from 1 January to 22 January.  On Jan 23, we resumed
at the University of Pennsylvania's CCAT (Center for Computer Analysis
of Texts) server.
 
The list is now called NewJour (to reduce typing)
It runs on majordomo software.
To subscribe:
 
        Message to:  majordomo@ccat.sas.upenn.edu
        Subject line:  leave it blank
        Body of message:  subscribe NewJour
                [NB:  do NOT put your name in the body of message]
 
The backfiles will be up on a gopher and will have searching capabilties.
We will announce that service when it is available, later this week
perhaps.
 
The system owners and operators are James O'Donnell and Michael
Nenashev, U of Pennsylvania.
 
You can reach them or send postings to:  NewJour@ccat.sas.upenn.edu
 
For questions of policy or content, message Ann Okerson:  ann@cni.org
 
We apologize for the inconvenience.  Any former subscribers to NewJour-L
have been re-subscribed and by now should all have received about a dozen
messages.

                       ACM 1995 SIGDOC CONFERENCE
 
                           A CALL FOR PAPERS
 
                          EMERGING FROM CHAOS:
             SOLUTIONS FOR THE GROWING COMPLEXITY OF OUR JOBS
 
                        October 2 - 4, 1995
 
          Hyatt Regency on the historic Savannah riverfront
 
                       Savannah, Georgia
 
SIGDOC 95 is a platform for us, as documentation specialists, to share
the solutions we have implemented to meet the challenges we face in our
jobs. As we grow in experience and expertise, the challenges become more
complex. We are no longer asked to provide one piece of the project but
the complete solution.
 
*  Print or on-line? Now we must deliver information through interactive
   software, graphics, hypertext, video, and sound running on multiple
   platforms.
 
*  On-line help? Now we have help systems that mix full-text searches,
   performance enhancement, and on-line selective viewing.
 
Many of these challenges are not solved by one project but by
interdependent projects, involving multiple teams from various
departments to provide the required skills. More collaboration is needed
among documentation, development, and other departments to deliver the
solutions.
 
SIGDOC 95 wants to hear
 
*  how you approached these challenges
 
*  what were the factors on which you based your decisions
 
*  what were the constraints (distance, media, technology)
 
*  how the plan was developed, reviewed, and approved
 
*  how you deployed your plan
 
*  what mid-project changes you had to make to the plan
 
*  what results you achieved
 
The aim of SIGDOC 95 is to showcase real-life solutions we can apply in
our jobs.
 
                  *****************************
 
CONFERENCE THEMES:
 
Share your experiences and practical solutions with your colleagues in
Savannah. Presentations or tutorials addressing these areas are
appropriate:
 
ON-LINE INFORMATION: THE SECOND GENERATION
*  developing on-line information on one platform and porting to other
   platforms
 
*  collaborating with your development groups to produce on-line help
   systems that provide full-text searches, performance enhancement
   systems, on-line selective viewing, and usable GUIs
 
EXPLOITING ELECTRONIC CONNECTIONS
*  using the networks, Internet, or World Wide Web to collaborate,
   gather, or disseminate information
 
*  distributing documentation, help systems, and software electronically
 
EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES
*  using innovative technologies that "in combination" support
   authoring, document management, group work, hypertext design and
   mapping, networks and distribution, multimedia, testing, integration
   of tool sets
 
*  what do we do to migrate to SGML and once we are there, where do we
   go?
 
CHANGING ROLES
*  joining the design or development teams to produce solutions
 
*  defining processes and using them to mature and improve an
   organization
 
*  measuring and improving quality
 
*  measuring and improving customer satisfaction

Organization: New York University
Subject:      Re: ACRL Journal Costs in Academic Libraries Discussion Group
 
 
 
I am personally not very in tune with what transpires at ALA meetings.
These organizers may not be in touch with the strong undercurrent
of "author-centered" view of scholarly publishing, as represented by
P. Ginsparg and a number of mathematicians who attended the recent
meeting organized by MSRI at Berkeley.
 
It is my own personal view that while totally free-of-charge publications
(electronic) will not be the norm, the author-centric view will have
a decided influence in getting us away from the present intractable
cost escalations.
 
Yes, it would be nice if somebody who might agree would speak to
the assembled.
