AIC = American Institute of Conservation
Dear AIC Members,
You may have seen the recent issue of the ConsDistList, which announced the
news that Stanford University Libraries can no long support CoOL. The
resources on CoOL, including the ConsDistList, have been major assets for
the conservation community over many years.
Press release: http://news.stanford.edu/news/2009/june17/layoffs-061709.html
The AIC board and key staff have met by phone conference call to discuss the
implications. CoOL is an important resource for the conservation community
internationally, and it must be preserved and maintained. AIC is committed
to do all we can to ensure that CoOL is not lost.
AIC has benefited greatly from CoOL in many ways. Many of our internal
listservs and specialty group websites, for example, are hosted by
Stanford. If you are responsible for a specialty group website, please keep
in mind it can be migrated easily to the new AIC website. Contact Brett
Rodgers to discuss this. JAIC, which is currently archived on the Stanford
server, is also accessible online through JSTOR. AIC leadership is assessing
all its assets currently hosted by CoOL and will devote itself to ensuring a
We thank Stanford University Libraries and Walter Henry for the invaluable
service they have provided for 22 years. We are in full support of
sustaining CoOL into the future.
