Jeremy...another list compiled by Corinne Smith of PSU, which has
proven invaluable for us media acquisitions types.  In her
announcement of this update, she encourages Media-L listers to post
it to other approapriate lists.
Although long, this listing includes some real gems...and in essence,
it symbolizes the sharing attitude of people on email lists--for many
of us have helped to add resource info to this dynamic list.
Happy hunting...Martha
