In response to AILA member requests, archives of the old AILA Message Center are now available. The complete archives are available on a flash drive and include 37,898 threads with 95,021 posts in 60 different forums dating from January 2001 to January 2006.
The cost is $95 including shipping and handling, with discounts available for multiple flash drive orders. A fee is being charged due to the high costs of retrieving the archived data and converting it to a searchable format. The flash drive is only available to AILA members.
The Message Center contents are searchable by keyword in both the "subject" and "message body text" fields. It is recommended that users select a particular forum to search rather than a universal search, as searches by a particular forum will generate results much faster.
To order the flash drive, download the order form and fax the completed form with payment to 202-783-7853. Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover accepted. Please allow up to 2 weeks for delivery. Flash drives will begin shipping on December 1.
