Libraries are getting very involved, and not only through individuals.
Witness the SPARC project supported by ARL and that originated from
Wisconsin with Ken Frazier. The Coalition for networked Information is
also involved, it seems to me and Ann Okerson, who used to work with CNI
before moving on to Yale, has, of course, always been on the frontlines.



PS Perhaps Ken Frazier should be invited to join this discussion.
