Subject: The new NLS Directory

This forum hasn't seem much use yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if the advent of the new directory sparks some interest and posting. Thanks to Julia, Peggy, and Tony for the time and effort that it must have required to put it together.

When I got Julia's e-mail announcing publication of the directory this morning I went to have a look. I wonder if anyone else had as similar experience to mine. Apart from being pleased and impressed, the first thing I did was to scroll through the entire list to see who was listed as deceased. It seemed most important to see who is gone from our collective past. It is a sobering, if not shocking experience. I'm sure I will find less morbid and more forward-looking ways of using the directory, but this exercise seemed to take precedence. It was an expression of respect. I offer condolences, however belated, to the surviving family and friends.
