Newsletters provide quick dissemination of information on focused topics and issues. Their content varies greatly, and can reflect the particular viewpoint or agenda of the publication's editor, publisher, producer, or funder.

Newsletters provide overviews of programs, policy reports, activities, services, product developments, funding opportunities, trade initiatives, white papers, and institutional research. They have traditionally not been routinely captured by indexing and abstracting services, but are given their own treatment in newsletter databases, such as those of the Bureau of National Affairs, LEXIS/NEXIS, NewsNet, PTS Newsletter Database, and Westlaw.

To help them keep abreast of fast-paced activities in the global change area, newsletters are widely read by researchers, policy makers, program and project managers and others. The newsletter also provides a critical function as a bibliographic surrogate by announcing the availability of databases, data files, reports, policy documents, and other non-traditional (fugitive or "gray") literature, weeks or months before such materials make their way into other bibliographic databases.

The following begins a list of newsletters that are available at no cost via the Internet and the World Wide Web. This list will be continued in future issues of the Global Climate Change Digest, and readers may propose candidates for future entries to Fred Stoss at
