    | Frank,
    | Further to my last, it appears that ION will sell copies for a
    fairly hefty
    | fee:
    | http://www.ion.org/publications/toc/journal.htm
    | It does not appear that they have digitized their journal which is a
    | terrible shame as this would be an invaluable resource for the many
    | on this site. I encourage list members to have a look at the titles
    of the
    | hundreds of papers that have been published in the ION Journal over
    the last
    | 60 years
    A n editorial comment in the latest issue of "Navigator's Newsletter"
    tells me that one can search the online archives of the Journal of the
    Institute of Navigation (which is, presumably, "Navigation") at-
    That search will presumably provide titles and authors (and, I hope,
    abstracts) of papers, but not full contents. The editorial goes on to
    say that members can download copies of ION papers, even very early
    ones, so from that it seems that the whole journal has been digitised
    in some form.
    It's of interest to me, as a non-member of ION, because there are
    several articles in Navigation that I would like to read. However,
    neither the Bodlieian Library in Oxford, nor (to my surprise) the
    Caird Library at the Greenwich Museum takes that journal.
    The Bodleian assures me, however, that if it is downloaded from their
    own site they have certain codes which provide access to journals that
    are otherwise private to members. I have not taken them up on that,
    yet, but will soon.
    Just to clarify, the above note refers to the Institute of Navigation
    in the US, and its journal, "Navigation", and not to the
    similarly-named Royal Institute of Navigation (RIN) of London, and its
    "Journal of Navigation".
