New--online in march 2004: company licenses for TAPPI test methods and technical information papers.

* Frustrated with having to replace your set of Test Methods or TIPs every two years?

* Frustrated because the set of documents are continually updated, making even the newest set out of date by the time it is published?

* Concerned about staying within the copyright laws regarding ethical and fair use of documents?

Your company can provide all employees with up-to-date access to the most current TAPPI Test Methods and Technical Information Papers by purchasing a TAPPI Company License for Test Methods and Technical Information Papers.

Company Licenses for access to ALL TAPPI Test Methods and Technical Information Papers will be available in March 2004. With a Company License your company will have immediate access to more than 500 individual Test Methods and TIPs. The benefits of a Company License include:

* Total access by all employees at any time

* No need for individuals to purchase separate copies

* No worries about violating copyright laws--full company access gives a company the right to print or share any of the documents internally without having to obtain copyright release

You can even choose how you want to use the Company License--over the internet or by installing a CD-ROM. The internet option ensures that all employees in your company will have instant access to the most current version of all Test Methods and TIPS, plus no software is needed. Or, you can choose to install a CD on your internal system and update it every six months with a new CD.

Test Method and TIPs CD-ROMs for individuals will continue to be available, but as in the past, they are designed for one user on one computer. It is a copyright violation to share the information beyond the primary user. The print version of the full sets will continue to be available, but on a print-on-demand basis. Companies will find that hard copies of these documents can be more economically obtained by printing them from their own system by permission through the company license.

The pricing is based on either number of employees or number of locations. Find out which would be most beneficial for your company by contacting tmtipsales@tappi.org, or calling +1-770-209-7287.

Individual Network Licenses:

Individuals may also access the Test Methods and TIPs on line for an annual fee of $250 (member) or $375 (list). The documents accessed in this fashion are licensed for only the use of the individual, and a password to access the system may be needed. To find out more details or to place an order, please email tmtipsales@tappi.org, or call +1-770-209-7287.

Test Methods - Useful Methods

This volume is the final publication of Useful Methods which were comprehensively reviewed by technical experts in 1991. These procedures were intended to help members measure certain properties of the products and materials they manufacture using simple laboratory procedures, even if not as precise and accurate as the Official or Provisional Methods. They have not been reviewed or sanctioned by TAPPI technical groups, as have the Official and Provisional Methods.
