What are the implications of this for specific segments of the literature that are going missing? Gray Literature? Conference Proceedings? AGI obtains 55% of its materials from the Web. What are the implications of this for specific segments of the literature that are going missing? Gray Literature? Conference Proceedings? International Partnerships have grown to fill other coverage gaps International Partnerships have grown to fill other coverage gaps The International publications represented by these partnerships are increasingly unavailable in US libraries. Is GeoRef doing enough to insure future availability? The International publications represented by these partnerships are increasingly unavailable in US libraries.
