also a few changes for the publication.  First, the February 15
issue will be the first of *six* issues for 1998 (an increase of 2

Library and Information Resources (CLIR).

This issue contains a feature article by Michael Lesk, Director,

events, project announcements, relevant web sites and Part II of a
