      Academe Today's DAILY REPORT
      for subscribers of The Chronicle of Higher Education

      Good day!

      * .
      * GOV. GRAY DAVIS of California said Thursday that he plans to make
      community service a graduation requirement for students at the state's
      public universities and community colleges.

      INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY
      * SOME LIBRARIANS and university-press officials say "netLibrary"-a

      distractions lie just a click away?
