Re: EPC: putting out-of-print Xtal textbooks on-line?

This seems to be a good idea and there are plenty of books. I just 
searched a fex days before finding a copy of a book about crystal 
defects by Read and I had the same feeling than Lachlan.

Selecting books to be recorded belong to the Editors to establish an 
ad-hoc Committee because I believe there are more books to be archived 
than it is possible to do. How about copyright also?

Regards.
