1. Clover Agreement
----------------------------------------------------

CHEST in association with University of Southampton, is pleased to
announce that it has reached agreement with Clover Publications for the
provision of the Newspaper Index (including Company Data Supplement)
and the Clover Information Index via the World Wide Web at the URL
http://clover.niss.ac.uk/

The Clover suite of databases comprises:

The Newspaper Index (including Company Data Supplement)  which covers
all the quality daily newspapers - Daily Telegraph, Financial Times,
Guardian, Independent, and Times.  It also covers the Observer, Sunday
Times, Economist, European, Times Education, Higher Education and
Literary Supplements.  The file goes back to late 1986 for many of
these.


The Clover Information Index indexes over 80 periodicals giving a wide
subject coverage, going back to the early 1970's for some periodicals.
Each entry in both indexes has a subject heading (with extra keywords
for the web version), article title, an annotation if thought
necessary, pagination and issue details.

Full lists of titles covered by both indexes will be provided on the
Clover website, http://www.cloverweb.co.uk Subscribers to The Newspaper
Index will receive the printed cumulations free of charge.

The annual charge throughout the three years of the agreement for
Newspaper Index under this Agreement will be #335 (plus VAT) per annum
for Higher and Further Education Institutions in the UK and Ireland,
Research Councils and Associated Sites.

The annual charge throughout the three years of the agreement for
Information Index under this Agreement will be #100 (plus VAT) per
annum for Higher and Further Education Institutions in the UK and
Ireland, Research Councils and Associated Sites.

The annual charge throughout the three years of the agreement is
reduced for those sites licensing both the Newspaper Index and
Information Index to #399 (plus VAT) per annum for Higher and Further
Education Institutions in the UK and Ireland, Research Councils and
Associated Sites.

In addition Public Libraries in UK and Ireland may subscribe on an
annual basis. The annual charge for Newspaper Index under this
Agreement will be #335 (plus VAT) per annum. The annual charge for
Information Index under this Agreement will be #100 (plus VAT) per
annum.  The annual charge for those sites licensing both the Newspaper
Index and Information Index is reduced to #399 (plus VAT) per annum.

Secondary and Primary Schools in the UK and Ireland (including 6th form
colleges), NHS Libraries and Registered Charities not included
elsewhere may subscribe to both indexes at an annual charge of #180
(plus VAT) per annum.

Prices may vary after 1st October 1999 for organisations that have
single year (renewable) Subscriptions.
