International Reading Association

Electronic access through IRA is a mess. They offer institutions rolling access to the current volume. The rolling date, however, is set to the date of the starting issue for the volume of one title, then follows through as the rolling start date for all titles, even if their volumes start at different points in the year. Confusing? Very. I called IRA today to ask about this situation. They are thinking about it. The board of directors will make the decision and set a time table. Names of the directors are at http://www.reading.org/association/about/board.html in case anyone wants to send an email. This issue is particularly troublesome to me as this is a well-used, popular electronic title in our collection.
