Library-Oriented Lists and Electronic Serials Archive

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, e-mail lists, which were typically distributed using the LISTSERV software, became an important way for librarians to share information and to learn about the Internet. At the same time, electronic journals, such as The Public-Access Computer Systems Review, began to be published on the Internet.

"Library-Oriented Lists and Electronic Serials" was periodically updated and distributed by Charles W. Bailey, Jr. as an ASCII e-mail message on the Public-Access Computer Systems Forum (PACS-L) list from 1990-1994 and on the Public-Access Computer Systems Publications (PACS-P) list from 1993-1994. It was frequently published in print form at the request of book authors and journal editors. He distributed the last version of the document on the PACS-P list on January 18, 1994.

Subsequently, Ann Thornton and Steve Bonario began maintaining the document. They distributed publication notices for new versions of the document on the PACS-L list on 10/5/94 and 1/18/95.

Next, Wei Wu began to maintain the document. She distributed a publication notice for a new version on the PACS-L list on 12/10/96. The document was moved to a Washington Research Library Consortium server when Wei Wu joined its staff. She maintained the document until 2006.
