> Subject: Welcome to the O'Reilly User Group Program
> Thank you for registering for the O'Reilly User Group Program.
> Here are details about the program you should know--PLEASE READ:
> O'Reilly offers free review copies of our books. As the group rep, you
> may request a copy for review in your newsletter, web site, mailing
> list, or for your group library. Requests for review copies must be
> submitted by you, as the contact for your group. If you wish for the
> review copy to be shipped to another group member, please supply the
> name, address, and phone number of that member for shipment. If a
> review of a book has been written, please forward a copy to me. We are
> also encouraging user group members to post reviews on their favorite
> book review sites such as Amazon or Slashdot. For current user group
> info, graphics, and book review information please go to:
> Feel free to list your group on our User Group Wiki:
> Your group members are entitled to a 20% discount on O'Reilly books
> purchased directly from O'Reilly. The discount code your members should
> use is DSUG. They may place an order online at www.oreilly.com or by
> calling 800-998-9938. Your members are also entitled to a 20% discount
> on O'Reilly conferences and tutorials. Other special discount offers
> may also be forwarded to your group from time to time.
> In addition, we regularly donate books and other promotional items for
> raffles or auctions to help your group raise money, or for meeting door
> prizes--just let me know if you're in need of something. (Allow at
> least three weeks for shipping.) Please feel free to request our
> catalogs anytime.
> Some of our authors are able to speak at user group meetings--let us
> know if you are interested and we'll do what we can to help arrange
> We'll also send you links to articles, tips, and book news from the
> O'Reilly web sites via the UG newsletter. If you opted not to receive
> the newsletter, you may want to reconsider, as this is the best way to
> know which books are being released, and serves as a reminder to
> request review copies for your group. Many groups post the newsletters
> to their members list or on their web site.
> What you can do for O'Reilly:
> - Add an O'Reilly Banner or RSS feed to your web site from our UG page:
> If you don't have a web site, please post O'Reilly information in
> your newsletters or mailing lists.
> - Encourage your members to review our books and post the reviews on
> your site or discussion lists, in your newsletters, or at any online
> book review site such as Amazon, Slashdot, or Barnes & Noble--making
> sure to notify me when a review is written.
> For book review suggestions go to:
> Please let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to working
> with you.
