    Dear Biomch-L readers,

    As regards Mr Rainer Stumpe's posting three days ago entitled "Free Information
    for Download", I wish to commend Springer Verlag of Heidelberg in Germany for
    providing factual information on new publications. While Biochemistry -- Mr
    Stumpe's main responsibility -- may not be of primary interest to the majority
    of Biomch-L readers (I may be wrong here, though?), I should hope that the EARN
    server mentioned by Mr Stumpe will also provide information on books that are
    of undisputed interest to our field. For example, Springer has published high
    quality translations in English of the work by Borelli, Braune and Fischer, and
    Pauwels, as announced at various occasions on Biomch-L, thus making their work
    accessible to those among us who do not have Latin and German.

    I should hope that summary statements on relevant publications will be released
    on Biomch-L in the future, with pointers on how to retrieve more elaborate data
    from publishers' fileservers. Alternatively, the list moderators will be happy
    to consider posting such information onto Biomch-L if publishers fear that pos-
    ting by themselves might be viewed as inappropriate use of networking facili-
