The COOK Report – Open Availability at CBI and the University of Minnesota Libraries
Gordon Cook, the sole editor and proprietor of the journal since its inception in 1992, made a gift of the complete run of the journal to CBI along with the expectation of its availability to everyone. We could not be more proud to undertake this responsibility. For the duration of its run to date, The Cook Report has been an electronic publication available only to subscribers. In its early years, it was delivered in PDF and RTF formats via the US Postal Service on disk, and later it was sent to subscribers via email. For a number of years, the University of Minnesota’s Science and Engineering Library subscribed, making it available online to students and faculty behind a firewall. CBI assumed the responsibility for hosting the publication in 2007 and it has been available students and faculty on our website, similarly behind a firewall.
For the first time now, this publication is available — in its entirety — to general audiences. Access is currently available in two locations:
The U Media Archive of the COOK Report holds image files of individual pages, grouped by issue. The content is fully indexed and searchable at multiple points within the discovery system. Image sizes can be changed.
PDF download of full issues will be available through a finding aid on the CBI website in mid-May.
