Subject: Re: 17.749 posting Humbul resources
The problem with simply posting materials to Humbul is that only a very
small number of scholars know about it and consult it on a regular basis.
The solution is to make sure that these materials are adequately copied on
one of the large international bibliographic utilities, such as RLIN or
OCLC. They have to become part of the standard information stream in order
to be available for scholarly use.
