FROM THE INSTITUTIONAL REPORTS EDITOR With this issue the SIGNUM Newsletter begins providing an online version of its Institutional Reports column. Point your Web browser to http://www.netlib.org/signum-reports/ to see the new online offerings. Going online should offer advantages both to readers and to submitters of report listings. Exactly what direction the online service takes, however, will depend on feedback we get from you. The easiest way to send your ideas is to visit the Web page and click a button. If you don't have Web access, see my address on the inside front cover for other ways to reach me.
