About the Pre-Web Archives

(Back to top)
Web publication of ALN began only with Issue No. 35. Prior to that, ALN was only available in hard copy. Furthermore, some of the older paper-only issues are now out of print. Therefore, as a service to ALN readers, the Arid Lands Information Center has begun a project to upload selected articles, and sometimes virtually entire issues, to the ALN web site. Decisions on which issues/articles to upload are made by the ALIC web development team based on input from ALN readers. Readers who would like to suggest pre-web articles or issues for uploading are requested to contact the editor at the address given above.
