Re: Bad news: CoOL]

Hello all,

This is my first post on this list. I'm planning on getting into carbon transfer later in the year. Does an e-mail discussion list really consume much of a major university's resources?

I just rec'd the most recent edition of the Conservation DistList. The first item reads as follows:

Subject: CoOL and the Conservation DistList

Dear Colleagues,

This is a difficult posting to write. For twenty two years, it has
been Stanford University Libraries' great pleasure to serve and
support the conservation community by hosting Conservation OnLine.
Sadly, Stanford---like so many other institutions---has been hurt by
the economy. As a result, we have had to make difficult choices. It
is with deep regret that I inform you that we are no longer able to
support CoOL. We feel it is important to alert you to this change
as we are aware that so many of you rely on the distribution list as
a medium of communication; there are still a number of things to be
worked out.


I make frequent use of the resources available from CoOL (Conservation Online) < http://palimpsest.stanford.edu/ >
