From: Lyn Legere <lynleg -at- bu.edu> Subject: Re: [WHITNEY-L] Re: How Many Date: Wed, 31 Jul 2002 22:06:45 -0400 References: <16b.115d6288.2a787a82@aol.com> <3D47CC1F.701@adelphia.net> I imagine much of the information can be forwarded electronically. Documents can be forwarded as attachments to many e-mail programs. Another way is to copy them into an e-mail. Another possibility may be to post things onto the Whitneygen.org page and people can download from there. There is also the possibility of people sending Self-Adressed Stamped envelopes for things they want copies of. For much of the work, it's a matter of either volunteering the time to do things or coordinate others to do things. But, yes, in the end, you may have to absorb costs or organize to get the moula from others. I might add, though, that in the end, most of the time, the work is rewarding and the group usually rallies to find good solutions to most things !
