Dear Jono Hardjowirogo,

thanks for your kind reply included below.

Do I understand you correctly that ACM's digital library will be
enhanced by books (currently I find only journals, citations and
proceedings). Will these be available only to ACM members or
also to everyone interested ?

thanks again
