Below you will find the formal announcement of the distribution list which
is intended to replace MICAT-L as a forum for the discussion of subjects
of general concern to the musical instrument museum community.

With the appearance of CIMCIM-L, discussion of all matters relating to
musical instruments on MICAT-L is now closed except for responses to
pending questions.

During the remaining week that MICAT-L will be in operation I will try to
persuade Walter Henry to provide detailed information about the
Conservation Distribution List. Information about the creation of
additional lists which may be of interest to MICAT-L members will be
posted on CIMCIM-L and the Conservation Distribution List.

If anyone is interested in a wrap-up discussion of MICAT-L's activities,
the list is at your disposal for the coming week.

Please note that there will be no automatic transferral of membership from
MICAT-L to CIMCIM-L. You must subscribe to the new list if you wish to
join it.

The MICAT-L membership roster will not be retained when the list is shut
down. Relevant contributions from the MICAT-L archives will be digested
and made available through the CIMCIM-L facilities.

Now -- as to CIMCIM-L:
