| Letters to the Editor
First of all, thank you very much for the JFM initiative! It is a great improvement in accessibility to mathematical literature. Please find below four comments/suggestions in the spirit of improving something very good...
ERAM was very useful to me, as I don't think I
could have gotten reasonable access to the Jahrbuch otherwise.
...and thanks again for a great research tool.

First of all congratulations for the Jahrbuch project !
I find that this will be an extremely useful resource.
I am chair of the library committee here at UCLA and
I was wondering if you plan to make available CD_ROMs

in purchasing them.
Also, I personally believe that all mathematical material
should be scanned, not just what is consider today the
most important material. This changes over time...

I am very impressed
with both the idea and the execution of your project, so if my
abilities might be useful I'd be happy to try and help...

But first I would like to thank you for this fantastic facility. I had
hankering after the Jahrbuch for a long time and did not know of this
until I met Dr. Keith Davis last fall. Now I am telling everybody about
it and this
is one comment I got from my colleague (historian) Tom Hawkins at Boston
"Thanks for the info about web access to the jahrbuch, Emma. It was news
me. The web is indeed amazing. In fact I wanted to read Stickelbergers
Berlin dissertation (ca 1874), which no library around here has, and
to my wondering eyes should appear ... but a viewable (and copyable)
of the dissertation, courtesy of one of the
