[UPS] Effingham agreement
Sun, 30 Jan 2000 16:05:09 +0000
This is an item for information. You may recall that the UPS protoproto
that we presented at the Santa Fe meeting did not include data for
about 13,000 paper held by arXiv.org from the period before 1994,
because it was not possible to separate author names from titles
with sufficient accuracy. I am pleased to tell you that work is being
carried to rectify this problem. This will involve a manual correction
of all these records. My UK eLib budget will fund that work as a donation
to arXiv.org. The work will be carried out by the Siberian Branch of the
Russian Academy of Sciences. Details are available at:
This document is called the the Effingham Aggreement. Effingham is the
birthplace of Simeon Warner. It is just a few miles down the road from
where I live.
I will let you know when that work is finished.
