The Virtual Acquisition Shelf and News Desk Update Week 25
New and Useful Web Sites, Industry News,
Full-Text Docs of Interest to the Info Professional.

8/23/01
Hello from Washington D.C.

Next week we will have details about subscribing to our new opt-in mailing
list as we begin the migration to Free Pint. About five or six weeks later,
Iíll cease distributing these weekly reminders directly to the listservs where
theyíre currently being posted. Of course, if the leadership of any of the
lists would like me to continue to post a copy, I would be happy to do so.  As
you already know, the weekly reminder is just that, a reminder. New material
is posted throughout the week DIRECTLY to the weblog. The email update is
*ONLY A SAMPLE* of what youíll find on the actual weblog site.

As we begin our move to a new home and approach the six month anniversary of
The Virtual Acquisition Shelf and News Desk I would like to thank you for the
support. I am thrilled that so many of you find the weblog worthy of your time
and attention.

Now, letís get to Week 25 highlights.

Cheers,

about all of the engines</a>. Relevancy is in the eyes of the user but many
times these engines associate relevancy with a click on a link not on the
information the web page provides.
