The Chronicle of Higher Education is sponsoring a live, online discussion
 on the deals signed by many academic libraries in the 1990s for
 subscriptions to electronic journals. An article in the new issue of The
 Chronicle explores the concerns of many academic librarians about these
 packages, as well as the reasons some librarians like these deals.

 Kenneth L. Frazier, a leading critic of the package deals, will be the
 guest for the online discussion, on Thursday, September 19, at 1 p.m.,
 U.S. Eastern time. Mr. Frazier is director of the library system at the
 University of Wisconsin at Madison and a past president of the board of
 the Association of Research Libraries.

 The Chronicle invites members of this list to read the article about the
 issue, to join the discussion with Mr. Frazier, and to pose advance
 questions or comments for him to respond to (advance questions are
 encouraged and may be posted now) at:

 A transcript of the discussion will be posted at that URL when the chat
