NCRVE'S FINAL MONTH

This is the final CyberSpace Update from NCRVE!  As of December 31,
1999, NCRVE will have reached the end of its grant cycle.  Here's what
will happen to the various NCRVE electronic services:

  o The WEBSITE will be transferred to a new physical location at the
    UC Berkeley Graduate School of Education in mid-December.  This
    transfer should be transparent to users--the current URL,
    http://ncrve.berkeley.edu/, will still work.  This "legacy" website
    will contain all full-text publications that currently exist on
    the website.  Features dependent on database interaction--product
    catalog searches, the events calendar--will no longer be
    available.  We also anticipate transferring a more complete version
    of the new voc ed centers soon to be announced by the federal
    government.

  o VOCNET will be discontinued December 17.

  o Other E-MAIL SERVICES--AskNCRVE, www-ncrve-announce, CyberSpace--
    will also be discontinued December 17.
