    Note to Deans/Librarians: Libraries going digital redux should consider that electronic media are easily manipulated by dictatorships and hackers (P.R. China, Russia, etc.).  In contrast, print publications may be smuggled even into N. Korea. Few seem aware of the negative effects of foregoing print publications, e.g., hacking, tracking/surveillance, online media censorship, and an “information black hole” due to inability to retrieve information as in the early Middle Ages!  JIS is available worldwide in databases (but only with uncensored Internet access).  However, print publications are unsurpassed for preserving and transmitting information and learning across borders.  You are welcome to share in this exciting WisdomQuest by subscribing and recommending ideally the entire interconnected thematic series of JIS I-XXXV 1989-2023+ to your college, institute, and major public libraries.  Libraries may acquire the JIS thematic series directly from the Institute (at a discount), and then subscribe to individual volumes via subscription services.  Online option via PayPal on JIS web: Order
