	FYIFrance: Wish-list, French book/library/network serials. Pt.1/2

by:	Jack Kessler

Several friends have complained of problems in the US finding
up-to-date information now on French developments in libraries, library
automation, networks, and tele-communications. Many fine US serials
collections are under great strain, and the currency-sensitive foreign
serials seem often to be the first to go.

In addition, the French, although they are making great advances in
networking on their own, don't yet speak the same network languages
spoken in the US -- from the French perspective, the US doesn't yet
speak the French approach -- this despite valiant cultural imperialism
efforts by both sides. So there is much online, but it isn't easily
accessible to either side (try Minitel!, try Internet!).

Waiting for Godot/NREN, I offer a short serials list, selected from the
excellent offerings at the national library school, the ENSSIB.  All of
the following are interesting and/or useful. I've included some notes
on how to get them if they are not in US libraries. Like any list, this
one is incomplete: I'll be very grateful for any suggestions as to
significant omissions which I've made. There are one or two very
strange items included in what follows.
