Hi Michael,

I tend to get most of what I used to get from magazines and papers
via websites now. But based on the copies I have seen, I'd concur
With Bob on Linux Journal (and I'd probably read it if I didn't need
to buy it first).

Then there was that Australian effort that Con Zymaris was
involved with, not too sure if it still exists as I rarely
visit news agents. An Australian publication would probably
also be a nice thing to support.

While not strictly Linux, Make magazine looks rather cool.

Another idea would be for the library to make current Linux CDs available.

If you think someonething's a good idea, go for it. :o)

        New to the list, only been to one Thursday clug so far.

    I've been looking in the ACT library catalogue, and it seems that tho they have a few books on Linux, they don't get any of the popular magazines.  I plan to put in an acquisition request for one of them, most likely Linux Format, since that is the one I seem to have bought most often.

    I'm wondering whether the list has an opinion, and also whether I can refer to clug as supporting the idea.
