Would it be a good idea at this point to send a similar message to the collection development officers list you've developed (deleting the last sentence perhaps)?

“Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.” — Mark Twain (1835-1910). 
“When the Day of Judgment dawns and people, great and small, come marching in to receive their heavenly rewards, the Almighty will gaze upon the mere bookworms and say to Peter, “Look, these need no reward. We have nothing to give them. They have loved reading.” — Virginia Woolf (1882-1941)

The other major press they have signed is the University of California Press. They are very interested in working on an ARL offer and we are in frequent communication now. Oxford would like to make an offer for their own content and that of the other university presses at UPSO.
