Commission announces "Great Lakes Daily News" service via e-mail
Free subscription through GLIN at www.glin.net/forms/dailynews_form.html

Ann Arbor, Mich. - The Great Lakes Commission is pleased to offer a new 
service through the Great Lakes Information Network (GLIN). The "Great 
Lakes Daily News" e-mail list provides a free daily news feed of recent 
coverage of Great Lakes-St. Lawrence issues by print, radio and television 
media outlets in the United States and Canada. This section of GLIN, which 
provides an  "electronic clipping service" for more than 50 major regional 
newspapers and news services, is updated Monday-Friday by noon. For the 
latest headlines, visit www.glin.net/news/

"Great Lakes Daily News provides a valuable service to the Great Lakes-St. 
Lawrence community and beyond," says Commission Chair Nat Robinson. "It is 
a real asset for those of us who work on Great Lakes-St. Lawrence issues, 
as well as  members of the general public who hold an interest in the 
region."

Subscribers to the Great Lakes Daily News listserv will only receive one 
message per day; this is not a discussion list. Those interested in 
subscribing can visit www.glin.net/forms/dailynews_form.html or send an 
e-mail message to majordomo@great-lakes.net with the command "subscribe 
dailynews" (minus the quotes) in the body of the message.

Future expansions to the Great Lakes Daily News section on GLIN will 
include a Press Room featuring press releases supplied by partner agencies 
and organizations, and a searchable archive of online news articles. Also 
being considered is a service that will allow partner agencies and 
organizations to feature a "Great Lakes Daily News Box" on their own web 
sites. Maintained daily by Commission staff, this box will provide a 
"window" to the latest regional news and the related suite of GLIN News   
services.

Online since 1993, GLIN has been recognized as the primary gateway on the 
Web to Great Lakes-related news, issues, organizations and activities. Its 
usage has grown remarkably and now averages 2 million hits per month. In 
addition to environmental data, GLIN provides information about the 
regional economy, a thriving tourism industry, state and provincial 
demographics, and educational resources.
