2. Decision that we need to rephrase explanatory lines under some of the headings in the "Find Articles" scroll over:

How do I find an article? <http://www.libraries.rutgers.edu/rul/how_do_i/find_an_article.shtml> Step-by-step instructions on how to find a journal article on a particular topic.

Indexes and Databases <http://www.libraries.rutgers.edu/rul/indexes/indexes.shtml> Use these indexes to search for articles on a particular topic.

How do I know if RU has a particular journal? <http://www.libraries.rutgers.edu/rul/how_do_i/subscribes.shtml> Once you know where an article was published, use these step-by-step instructions to find out if Rutgers has access to that particular journal via IRIS <http://www.iris.rutgers.edu/iris.html>.

3. Reviewed indexes and databases we think are in the works for purchase.

4. Discussed length of process to get electronic resources fully processed.
