Dear David,

The Norwegian School of Management has shifted all of its
course descriptions, rule books, etc., to the web.

People do print material out from time to time, but my guess is
that the great savings comes from people who use selected
sections only or people who would grab copies and never
read them.

Seems to work well.

Best regards,
