Does anyone know of plans to publish (in any medium) the Proceedings of the
"Going Online" workshop being run by Ann Rockley for the STC South-western
Ontario Chapter (Region 1) ?
I sent an e.m to Karen Piech (Workshop Coordinator) and Catherine McNair
asking for details, but this may have gone into an electronic black hole
somewhere. Any information would be appreciated.
This is my first time on this list, so please pardon and correct any breaches
