Excessive requests for papers

Dear Auditory List,

I would like to return to a point of discussion which was made some years ago regarding paper requests. 

It is acknowledged that some research articles, due to their age or presence in an obscure hard to find conference proceedings, are difficult to get your hands on, and a request for help in finding them is not inappropriate, especially after some effort have been made by the requester to search various libraries. 

It is not however appropriate to ask the list for copies of *regularly available* articles, especially from those associated with a university where the articles can easily be obtained through basic library services (albeit sometime with some fee to the lab), and *especially* for an article with a clearly identifiable DOI! 

The Auditory list is not a replacement for your activities as a researcher to actually research information. 

Please refrain from bombarding all our emails with such requests until you have made a real effort to find the article in question.
