Subject: e-usage survey declined

The question was, Should ADS be officially involved in the survey of e-usage?

Thanks for your input earlier this month. Your replies were mixed, and the

ADS Executive Council voted to decline official participation, the greatest

concern being our practice of not endorsing commercial activities of any


That does not mean, however, that we are expressing any opposition to the

project. I am asking Mr. Bruner to keep us informed about the survey and its

results. And now I will reprint his initial inquiry, inviting subscribers to

our list to respond directly to his request for suggestions.

- Allan Metcalf, ADS Executive Secretary
