The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) has published this directory of over 3,000 academic and professional discussion lists and 1,688 electronic journals, newsletters, and newsletter-digests. This tool is designed for assisting individuals in locating Internet resources as well as assisting librarians in building electronic collections. The directory is organized to assist the user in locating relevant publications and discussion groups quickly. The book is divided into two listings: (1) electronic journals and newsletters (listed alphabetically) and (2) academic and professional discussion lists (arranged topically). Entries concerning journals include a short description of each title and access information. A URL (Uniform Resource Locator) is provided for over 90% of the journal and newsletter titles. Information on International Standard Serial Number (ISSN), costs, first and back issues, peer review, frequency, and submissions are also included. Scholarly and professional discussion groups are arranged by subject; entries include moderator contact information, and indicate whether the lists are edited and archived. There are separate alphabetical title indexes for each of the two sections, and a subject guide to the academic and professional lists. In addition, there is a combined index for the two sections with keywords, titles, and institutional affiliations. The directory also contains a comprehensive review of online, full-text, peer reviewed, English language journals in the areas of science, technology, and medicine entitled, "A Survey of STM Online Journals 1990-95: The Calm before the Storm," (Steve Hitchcock et al.).
