You are right, it doesn't matter who does it, all that matters is that it
is made available for use by researchers. The key word on availability is
FREE....that is what we strive for. So many sites out there with
resources....but they want to charge. MAGA site is geared to free
resources always has been and always will, contrary to other sites who
offer publications for sale. The CD's you refer to no doubt fit into the
free category too but aren't available at a moment's notice, at least not
that I am aware of, but they are available, that's what counts.
Will post your reply to the List so that all can be made aware of the
availability of the CD's. Thanks for your response..
