Best North America Dr. Charles Graham 03 Feb 1994 16:41 EST

To continue the discussion of BEST North America:

We have completed a survey of BEST North America on the Louisiana
State University campus.

No one reported being contacted as a result of their record being
accessed by BEST NA subscribers.

BEST NA reported 617 LSU faculty records accessed between 1/1/93
and 10/31/93. Some of these were apparently repeat hits due to
searchs being repeated on the same day; after the repeats were
subtracted, there were 450 accesses of 308 faculty.

One hundred and nine of these faculty responded to our
questionnaire, all of them reporting no contacts as a result of
their listing with BEST NA. Faculty were informed that if they did
not return the questionnaire, we would assume they had received no
contacts.

We have decided to take a wait-and-see attitute with respect to
continued participation. We are not willing to cough up a
participation fee at the present time, but we will be interested to
see what added value the new CEO can bring to the service.
