ABSTRACT
The dissemination of information has changed substantially in recent years. Powerful software is available that provides methods to distribute information that have clear advantages over the use of hard copies. This paper discusses the impact of such modern publishing methods on the cost of printing and the environment. Additionally, benefits of electronic publishing such as the capability to update information are discussed. Disadvantages of electronic information dissemination (e.g., access issues) do exist and are also presented in this paper.
