Dear Subscribers,

Occasionally you write to us with questions about navigating our web
site, or offering suggestions about its content. These questions and
suggestions are important to us. As we put the finishing touches on
our new home page, these messages let us know the areas that might need
improvement--or simply clarification. In the meantime, we are happy
to direct you to the information you seek. (We usually have it, even
though its location may not be completely transparent yet!)

For example one reader wrote...

	"You have a whole section of the web site dedicated for job
	listings. Don't you think it would be a good idea to include
	internships or summer jobs in it for undergraduates like me who 
	are eager to start working in their field despite the very few 
	opportunities available for students?"

As you may remember, we instituted the Support topic in 1998 for just
this purpose. In these issues we advertise opportunities for students
which are aimed at supporting their efforts to gain a degree,
including graduate assistantships and fellowships. When we implement
our new home page, there will be a direct link to the Support
issues. In the meantime, all Support issues are available for browsing
and can be accessed from our home page
Just click the Jobs button at the top of the page; once there, you
will see a new menu across the top of the page. Hold the mouse over
"Jobs", and you will see a drop-down menu that includes "Student
Support". Or simply scroll down the menu at the left; under Related
Links, you will see LL Support Issues.

Thanks to all of you who have for taken the time to write. As always,
we value your input.

Best regards,
