Why is this issue of Almanac individually addressed?

We do this once a year to notify faculty and staff that the journal of record, opinion and news is back in weekly production. Normally Almanac is distributed in bundles to University buildings, where each department chooses its own system for further distribution. To find out how the system works, try the departmental secretary first, or the head of the school or building mailroom. If all else fails, mail your label to Almanac (see address above), or fax it to us at (215) 898-9137, adding your campus phone number so we can direct you to a source of help. Almanac is also available online--for easy reference add a bookmark in your browser at www.upenn.edu/almanac. CanÍt wait to read the latest news?
