Other topics include an overview of various services and fees; the legal issues of document delivery; a glimpse of document delivery in AT&T's corporate setting; the future outlook for document delivery; and a directory of current suppliers along with a brief evaluation of the capabilities of each.

Ebersole); (4) "A Case Study: Document Delivery in a Corporate Setting" (Laurie McFaddon and Rochelle Levin); (5) "The Future of Document Delivery--Statements from Suppliers" (Brian Hancock and others); (6) "Snapshot of Document Suppliers" (Laurie McFaddon and Rochelle Levin).
