Primary research journals and meetings have long been the principal vehicles for communicating science information within the physics and astronomy community. Both vehicles have been slowly and subtly running into major problems because of expanding sizes and goals of the community, growing interdependencies of subject areas and increasing need for application of new and available technologies. The problem has been defined and initial solutions for improving information flow among physicists have been developed. Current Physics Information (CPI) is intended to supply economically, speedily and effectively the contents of a selected set of quality journals in any format desired by the subscriber. This selected limited coverage of the literature is complemented by comprehensive services available through "Physics Abstracts." (AB)
