I've asked Leonard di Santo from HW Wilson to respond directly to the
list-serv with questions about pricing and access.
Also, (for the Georgia ARLIS/SE members) he said he will follow-up with the
Georgia Board of Regents to see if there is any hope that the Art Index
Retrospective will be available through GALILEO.
At this time, there is no plans for SOLINET to offer a discounted package
PS I will be out of the office for the rest of this week, returning on
Monday, Nov. 6th
