SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- According a letter to local leaders from
Elder Boyd K. Packer of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, the LDS
Church's magazines will be available on-line on the Church's Internet
site www.lds.org starting in
September. Elder Packer's letter indicated that the content of the
magazines will be available online 90 days following publication.
The letter confirms reports received by Mormon News that the Church
was preparing to put the magazines on-line. Some reports indicated
that the Church was preparing the text of the magazines for
publication in a CD-ROM, but more recent reports said that the
magazines would be put on line.
The letter from Elder Packer talks about the Church's curriculum
support materials, which will be published only in the Church
magazines starting in September. He encourages leaders to make sure
that teachers have access to the Church magazines so that these
materials are available to them.
