DISCUSSION LINKS ACTIVATED ON OCT. 7 ! Netscape users will see a peculiar screen with a grid of 2 rows x 4 columns, and only several icons filled in. The top row, second box from the right is the "add discussion" box (hold your pointer over it and the name should appear). We are working to fix this problem...

Washington State libraries of all types are developing a cooperative approach to licensing commercial on-line databases. The Washington State Library serves as a clearinghouse for information and participation, and efforts are guided by a Steering Committee that represents the state's whole library community. Over 2,000 libraries offer their users the statewide full-text periodical and newspaper package that was licensed for the period October 1998 - December 2000. About half the cost of this package was subsidized with federal Library Services and Technology Act money, with remaining funds coming from local budgets.
Additionally, dozens of libraries have used local funds to participate in smaller group purchases for over a dozen additional databases.
