UNCOVER REVEAL: FREE EMAIL TABLE-OF-CONTENTS DELIVERY OVER THE INTERNET
In April 1994, the UnCover Company, jointly owned by the CARL Corporation
and B.H. Blackwell, released its new Internet email table of contents
(TOC) delivery service called Reveal. Reveal will allow any UnCover user
to tag specific journals so that every time a new issue of that title is
entered into the UnCover database the entire table of contents will be
automatically sent to the requesters' Internet electronic mailbox. Users
may use reply email to request document delivery at the rate of $8.50,
plus the copyright fee and any fax surcharge (primarily added for overseas
Each email TOC will include the journal name, issue date, author, full
article title, any available summary information, starting page number,
a profile on UnCover which includes an Internet email address. Users may
establish their own profile, at no cost, or have UnCover staff set them up
for a one time fee of $25. A list of journal titles may be added by the
user to their profile to activate the service. The recipient may respond
via email with an order for an article by replying to the message (include
the text of the message in the reply), and typing the word ORDER on the
last line of the entry for the article to be delivered.
OCLC introduced its ContentsFirst email TOC delivery in January 1994.
However, OCLC charges an initial set-up fee and ongoing fees for each
journal title (on an annual basis) to use their service. UnCover is
offering the service at no cost.
UnCover currently indexes almost 16,000 journal titles and has a database
of over 5 million citations, making it the largest TOC service in the
industry. UnCover may be accessed via the Internet by telnetting to
database.carl.org or direct-dial over regular telephone lines to (303)
756-3600 (full-duplex, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity at speeds
ranging from 300 baud up to 19,200 baud). There is no cost for searching
