Case Study 3: Magazine Still
11/23/04: First contact with librarian, left message, marked
calendar. He called back, said to contact permissions associate
in New York office, provided phone number.

she would be out until Monday, marked calendar to call her
next Thursday 12/2.

2/11/05: Permissions contact called back. She asked whether
our site was password-protected. I asked her if that was
something they would be more comfortable with, and she said
it wasn't a big deal; she just needed to know what to tell
people she was going to bring the proposal to. She basically
said that she thought it "should" be okay to put up the
articles, since we are nonprofit. She first asked for a
list, and when I told here there were over five hundred
documents, she said to wait and she would talk to people
to see if they could get around that. She will get back
to me next week.

heard back. She will send it to them again, and I will hear
from her at the beginning of next week.
