Ann Arbor, Mich. – The Great Lakes Commission is pleased to offer a new service through the Great Lakes Information Network (GLIN). The “Great Lakes Daily News” e-mail list provides a free daily news feed of recent coverage of Great Lakes-St. Lawrence issues by print, radio and television media outlets in the United States and Canada. This section of GLIN, which provides an “electronic clipping service” for more than 50 major regional newspapers and news services, is updated Monday-Friday by noon. For the latest headlines, visit http://www.glin.net/news/
“Great Lakes Daily News provides a valuable service to the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence community and beyond,” says Commission Chair Nat Robinson. “It is a real asset for those of us who work on Great Lakes-St. Lawrence issues, as well as members of the general public who hold an interest in the region.”
Subscribers to the Great Lakes Daily News listserv will only receive one message per day; this is not a discussion list. Those interested in subscribing can visit http://www.glin.net/forms/dailynews_form.html or send an e-mail message to email@example.com with the command “subscribe dailynews” (minus the quotes) in the body of the message.
Future expansions to the Great Lakes Daily News section on GLIN will include a Press Room featuring press releases supplied by partner agencies and organizations, and a searchable archive of online news articles. Also being considered is a service that will allow partner agencies and organizations to feature a “Great Lakes Daily News Box” on their own web sites. Maintained daily by Commission staff, this box will provide a “window” to the latest regional news and the related suite of GLIN News services.
Online since 1993, GLIN has been recognized as the primary gateway on the Web to Great Lakes-related news, issues, organizations and activities. Its usage has grown remarkably and now averages 2 million hits per month. In addition to environmental data, GLIN provides information about the regional economy, a thriving tourism industry, state and provincial demographics, and educational resources.
