TOPIC: Archival Issues and ADS

Archival Issues and ADS 9 years 8 months ago #6

I have paper copies of the first seven issues of the Newsletter. I don't remember how I got them (maybe from Gerrie years ago), but I sent them to the Cambridge University library about ten years ago for scanning on their request, and they returned them. I would like to contribute them to some better archive than my personal bookshelf, since it seems they might be quite rare. If there is a shortage of other archival issues, I'm pretty sure I have the complete set and I would be happy to supply any missing ones to fill gaps in the archive.

One extra task in addition to producing the pdf version of each final issue used to be producing an index for the ADS and emailing it to someone in their office. I haven't done that for the last couple of issues (hoping they would have developed the capability to pick it up on their own), but if recent issues aren't showing up in ADS, that might be the reason.

Thanks for the offer, that would be great. Let me first see at ESO-Vitacura what they have on the shelf (I'll be back there next week).

Indeed ADS does not yet have the Vols. 39 and 40 indexed. Can you let me know how to submit an index to them?

Of the non-digitized issues, we have Issues 9, 11 to 14, and 16 to 27 in Vitacura. The ones produced at ESO (14 onwards) are staple bound and fairly easy to digitize. The Strasbourg issues before that are a harder nut, but just more work, far from impossible.

The remaining issues are in the library in Garching. Our librarian has contacted the Garching library on the topic, we waiting for the answer.

I remember that I was corresponding by email with someone at CDS and they changed the contact person. I'll try to dig it up from my ancient email. Or you could just send a more general question to ADS help and they could probably tell you who's in charge of it now. The indexing procedure they gave me at that time is probably also in my very old email archive, so I'll look for that, too.

I upload scanned issues 9 (Strasbourg), 14, 16, and 17 (ESO) as samples below. I hope Garching will send me the missing issues, but may take a while.
