    Subject: Electronic access to recently published books

    There is a new library service which may be of interest (perhaps
primarily to
    residents of countries where library budgets are severely restricted). A
    number of publishers are now placing electronic versions of their recent
books on
    line at ebrary. I have been told that John Benjamins is placing all of
    new books with ebrary. I also know that at least some linguistics books
    published by other companies are also available there. Apparently, over
    titles are available at this time.

    The address is <>. (No www in front.) Then click on
    <> which will get you to a page where you can
register and do searches.
    You can search to see what is available without registering, but you
    read anything until you register. Registering requires a deposit of at
least US
    $5.00. That money can then be used to pay for downloading ($0.50 per
    or printing ($0.25 per page). but you can read as much as you want to,
    you have put your deposit down.
