    Linn's 5/22/00: Editor's Choice: Rich Wolff promoted, Trends supplanted (by c.2009 he's not on the staff list)
    The popular 'Trends' section will be infrequent at best: "... In compiling Trends data in the last few years, we've found ourselves increasingly consulting online pricing sources, most notably our own Zillions of Stamps database. Online pricing data, we've found, is more current and now more abundant than printed price-list information. ..."
    and, "...Toward this end, I'm pleased to announce that Rich Wolff, who has been our Trends editor since mid-1996, has been promoted to our online staff in the position of electronic products group leader. Reporting to Donna Houseman, Rich will be broadly responsible for helping maintain and improve our current online products --, and

    Additionally, Rich will provide direction in developing, building and maintaining future online products, including Linn's Online, the long-planned electronic version of our weekly print publication. .."

    Research Resources

  1. Philatelic Periodicals of the World
    By Chester M. Smith, Jr. and Gini Horn '404' c.201503
    American Philatelic Research Library (APRL)

    "This listing of philatelic periodicals is taken from a work-in-progress on the philatelic periodicals of the world. The project aims to update and expand listings in the book "American Philatelic Periodicals," published in 1978.

    "We began the project by incorporating the titles from the George Turner bequest to the Smithsonian Institution Libraries, National Postal Museum Branch. Once these materials were added to the 1978 work, we expanded the project to cover philatelic periodicals world-wide.

    "Our goal is to have one list of the world's periodicals from the beginning to the present, in alphabetical order. We are striving to make this document as easy to use as possible, both bibliographically and typographically. The section presenet here was as of June 1996. We invite your comment."
