Subject: Union list of West European newspapers & news magazines

This message has been posted on several listservs.

The Union list of selected West European newspapers and news
magazines in New York metropolitan libraries has been made available
on the WWW.

The creation of the Union list was part of a cooperative
collection development project among the four research libraries of
the region (Columbia University, New York Public Library (Research),
New York University, Rutgers University) in a joint effort to fill
gaps in their Western European newspaper collection. The Union list
provides information about 91 current newspaper and news magazine
titles at 35 New York metropolitan libraries.

The union list was created by a METRO [New York Metropolitan
Reference and Research Library Agency] Task Force and will
hopefully improve access to the joint collections and allow for
correct referrals.

The Union List can be reached at the following URL:
