The catalogue of the future.

The Stamp Collecting Report, I'm Lloyd de Vries.
The Scott Catalogues are the standard for collectors in this 
country, but if you want a single country, it can be 

"Instead of having to buy, let's say, Volume 3 for Germany, 
and paying $35, you'll be able to get Germany and download 
it on the Web."
[RUNS :10]

Scott Publishing's Stuart Morrissey says that should make 
collectors happy.

"That way, you can update all your information every year 
and get the information you REALLY want, at a much cheaper 
[RUNS :07]

Because of the cost, not every collector buys a new edition 
every year.

"Yes, of course, you have those very regular customers who 
buy the catalogue every year, but then, there are many buyers, 
and these are probably over 50%, who buy the catalogue every 
three years."
[RUNS :11]

Scott would like to sell them a new edition EVERY year.

This way, we can sell more people more information but we can 
sell them the information that they really want and need."
[RUNS :07]

And it should happen in 2001.

And that's stamp collecting this week. 

I'm Lloyd de Vries, CBS News.
