I was almost suggesting my library to donate the old JASA hard copies, but now I don't. I've found, to my disappointment, that the reproduction in the new CD-ROM's is of a significantly worse quality than that in the old ones, much less the published (printed) volumes. Though I can read them on screen without a problem, the print out is so fuzzy that I cannot read text without guessing. Some graphs also suffer even on screen. Making the print preference of DjVu to the darkest does not help. It may be because I use a Mac version of DjVu plug-in (3.0 beta 7, which is the latest. The one that came with the CD-ROM does not install -- freezes Mac OS 9.0.4) with Netscape 4.75 (U.S. version) and postscript printers. I had hoped I could print out articles from the CD-ROMs in order to carry to read (I do not usually carry a lap top). I still have to go to the library and photocopy them for that purpose. I would like to hear other people's experience. Koichi Mori At 06:09 PM -0600 01.1.19, James W. Beauchamp wrote: >Vols. 1-100, 1929-1996 of JASA on CD-ROM arrived today.
