This edition of the directory is a revised and expanded version of the second, which was published as a supplement to the Journal in July 1994 and the original which was published in July 1993. Its publication has been delayed for various reasons — from government furloughs and reorganizations to blizzards - which were entirely beyond the control of the Journal or Dr. Goldsmith. It also represents a further attempt to improve the content and format; the changes reflect a desire to broaden the scope of opportunities listed and to make it more complete. The index has also been expanded and (hopefully) made clearer in this edition.
Furthermore there are discussions about the possibility of making this Directory available through the internet, via the Society's Home Page. Such access would mean that data are updated on a regular and more frequent basis and are therefore more timely.
