Subject: We need YOUR help!
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
As some of you may know, I edit the marine section of New Species in
CONCH-NET. If you did not and would like to check it out, the URL is
<http://coa.acnatsci.org/conchnet/edunewsp.html>.It is my belief that one
of the most important services COA can provide to its members is to keep
them abreast of the latest conchological discoveries.
For those of you who have been frustrated because you could not find there
the latest species that YOU KNEW had been described, the reason is simple:
we get only a few of the periodicals where new species are published, and
we can publish only what we get. As of now, we are exchanging issues with
La Conchiglia, Basteria, The Nautilus, Apex and Spixiana, and have received
occasional issues of other periodicals.
This message is a request for help from those of you who do subscribe to
periodicals not listed above and which publish new species. I am asking
you to contact me PRIVATELY and tell me which magazines you receive. After
I get the information I will answer you PRIVATELY how you can help. Perhaps
there are other editors of malacological journals who may be interested in
exchanging? I am sure the Conchological Cyber-community will be greatful.
Please, help CONCH-NET be even better than what it already is.
