From: IAN.WORTHINGTON@classics.utas.edu.au Subject: *ELECTRONIC ANTIQUITY* 1, 8 ----------------------------Original message---------------------------- [Apologies: a problem with my distribution list has meant that this announcement/issue is coming out a couple of days later than planned. IW] ========== As a subscriber to *Electronic Antiquity* you are now being contacted to let you know that April's issue (Volume 1 Issue 8) is now available. A list of contents and access instructions follow. *ELECTRONIC ANTIQUITY: COMMUNICATING THE CLASSICS* ISSN 1320-3606 Peter Toohey (Founding Editor) Ian Worthington (Editor) VOL. 1 ISSUE 8 - APRIL 1994 (01) LIST OF CONTENTS (02) ARTICLES Fantham, Elaine, 'New Directions in Latin Literary Criticism' Tarrant, Harold, 'Chronology and Narrative Apparatus in Plato's Dialogues' (03) REVIEWS Goetsch, Sallie R., 'Aristophanes *Wasps* in Detroit' Powell, Barry B., 'R. Thomas, *Literacy and Orality in Classical Greece*' (04) EMPLOYMENT AUSTRALIA: Chair of Classics, University of New England UNITED KINGDOM: Lectureship in Ancient History, University of Reading (05) KEEPING IN TOUCH Conference: International Society for the Classical Tradition, Boston University (call for papers) Conference: *THESAVRVS LINGVAE LATINAE* University of Tuebingen (announcement) Electronic Forums & Repositories for the Classics by Ian Worthington (06) GUIDELINES FOR CONTRIBUTORS *Electronic Antiquity* Vol. 1 Issue 8 - April 1994 edited by Peter Toohey and Ian Worthington email@example.com ISSN 1320-3606 ------------------------ A general announcement (aimed at non-subscribers) that the journal is available will be made in approximately 12 hours time over the lists - as a subscriber you will be automatically contacted in advance when future issues are available. Volume 1 Issue 9 will be published in May 1994. The editors welcome contributions (all articles will be refereed, however a section - *Positions* - will exist for those wishing to take a more controversial stance on things). HOW TO ACCESS Access is via gopher or ftp. The journal file name of this issue is 1,8-April1994; Volume 1 Issues 1-7 may also be accessed in the same way. GOPHER: -- info.utas.edu.au and through gopher: -- open top level document called Publications -- open Electronic Antiquity. -- open 1,8-April1994 -- open (01)contents first for list of contents, then other files as appropriate FTP: -- FTP.utas.edu.au (or ftp.info.utas.edu.au) --> departments --> classics --> antiquity. -- In Antiquity you will see the files as described above. Since a few people had problems accessing the journal via ftp, here are the stages in more detail: at your system prompt: FTP at the subsequent prompt: open FTP.utas.edu.au at login prompt: anonymous at password: your username (which won't show) then: cd departments then: cd classics then: cd antiquity then: ls -l then: cd 1,8-April1994 then: ls -l You will now have a list of the various directories (the 'd' beginning each line 'drwx....' indicates you're dealing with a directory) then: cd (into whichever directory you want) then: ls -l If the first character in the line is not 'd', you've got a file. Use the 'get' command plus the file name to download. If you're still in a directory, use the 'ls-l' command to list its contents. Use 'get' to transfer files. To move back up the directory tree: type: cdup then: ls -l And repeat the process. If still having trouble, try, once you have the directory list for the journal: Type (for example) cd (01)Contents Your response should be 'CWD command successful', but no list. Type ls-l Your response should be in a form such as: -rw-rw-r--1 1689 77030 DATE TIME contents Type get contents and you should have a copy. A final alternative if a space is magically inserted in the parenthesis of the file number is to specify: CD ./(01)Contents Please also be very careful when ftping *not* to leave *any* spaces in file names or make typos. Do NOT use Telnet. The best way to access the journal (in terms of both ease and time) is by gopher, and we would urge you to do so. The structure of the journal is also more easily recognisable on gopher. Please try to access *here* in Tasmania either during the night, very early morning or at weekends, since during the business day the lines are crammed. This means you'll need to check with (e.g.) the international operator for the right time difference.

The book seems interesting enough, but what caught my eye was that the author or publisher has trademarked the term "netiquette"! Would this mean that the people who post the netiquette files on USENET now have to ask for permission? Pay a small fee? I can't sell my "Netiquette is for geeks" t-shirts anymore? Is this reminiscent of Comptons' attempt to patent multimedia? Just wondering on a beautiful summer day in Bloomington, Indiana (the annular eclipse, which has just run its course, seems to have affected our cognitive abilities...)

Sperberg-McQueen" Organization: ACH/ACL/ALLC Text Encoding Initiative Subject: TEI Guidelines published ----------------------------Original message---------------------------- Readers of this list/group will, I hope, be interested in the following announcement; please feel free to re-post it to other appropriate lists and groups. Thanks. -CMSMcQ ----- TEXT ENCODING INITIATIVE PUBLISHES GUIDELINES On May 16, the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) publishes its "Guidelines for Electronic Text Encoding and Interchange." This report is the product of several years' work by over a hundred experts in fields ranging from computational linguistics to Ancient Greek literature. The Guidelines define a format in which electronic text materials can be stored on, or transmitted between, any kind of computer from a personal microcomputer to a university mainframe. The format is independent of the proprietary formats used by commercial software packages. The TEI came into being as the result of the proliferation of mostly incompatible encoding formats, which was hampering cooperation and reuse of data among researchers and teachers. Creating good electronic texts is an expensive and time-consuming business. The object of the TEI was to ensure that such texts, once created, could continue to be useful even after the systems on which they were created had become obsolete. This requirement is a particularly important one in today's rapidly evolving computer industry. To make them "future-proof", the TEI Guidelines use an international standard for text encoding known as SGML, the Standard Generalized Markup Language. SGML was originally developed by the publishing industry as a way of reducing the costs of typesetting and reuse of electronic manuscripts but has since become widely used by software developers, publishers, and government agencies. It is one of the enabling technologies which will help the new Digital Libraries take shape. The TEI Guidelines go beyond many other SGML applications currently in use. Because they aim to serve the needs of researchers as well as teachers and students, they have a particularly ambitious set of goals. They must be both easily extensible and easily simplified. And their aim is to specify methods capable of dealing with all kinds of texts, in all languages and writing systems, from any period in history. Consequently, the TEI Guidelines provide recommendations not only for the encoding of prose texts, but also for verse, drama, and other performance texts, transcripts of spoken material for linguistic research, dictionaries, and terminological data banks. The Guidelines provide detailed specifications for the documentation of electronic materials, their sources, and their encoding. These specifications will enable future librarians to catalogue electronic texts as efficiently and reliably as they currently catalogue printed texts. The TEI Guidelines also provide optional facilities which can be added to the set of basic recommendations. These include methods for encoding hypertext links, transcribing primary sources (especially manuscripts), representing text-critical apparatus, analyzing names and dates, representing figures, formulae, tables, and graphics, and categorizing of texts for corpus-linguistic study. The Guidelines also define methods of providing linguistic, literary, or historical analysis and commentary on a text and documenting areas of uncertainty or ambiguity. The TEI Guidelines have been prepared over a six-year period with grant support from the U.S. National Endowment for the Humanities, Directorate General XIII of the Commission of the European Union, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada. The effort is largely the product of the volunteer work of over a hundred researchers who donated time to share their experience in using computers and to work out the specific recommendations in the Guidelines. The project is sponsored by three professional societies active in the area of computer applications to text-based research: the Association for Computers and the Humanities, the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing, and the Association for Computational Linguistics, which have a combined membership of thousands of scholars and researchers worldwide. Many projects in North America and Europe have already declared their intention of applying the TEI Guidelines in the creation of the large scale electronic textual resources which are increasingly dominating the world of humanities scholarship. The Guidelines are available in paper form or electronic form over the Internet. For more information contact the TEI editors by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.

The editors ------------------------------------------------------------------------- For Immediate Release: May 23, 1994 To Order Contact: ARL Publications (phone) 202-296-2296 (fax) 202-872-0884 (e-mail) firstname.lastname@example.org ARL EXPANDED 4TH EDITION OF DIRECTORY OF ELECTRONIC PUBLICATIONS AVAILABLE The Association of Research Libraries announces publication of the Fourth Edition of the hard-copy standard reference work for serials on the Internet: the Directory of Electronic Journals, Newsletters, and Academic Discussion Lists. The extraordinary rate of expansion of microcomputers and linked networks as vehicles for scholarly exchange, along with growth in the rate of the use of the Internet, does not abate. The number of journals, newsletters, and serial-like academic publications continues to increase daily and scholarly communication expands in exciting new ways. Although many journals, newsletters, and scholarly lists may be accessed free of charge through Internet and affiliated networks, it is not always simple to find what is available. The new edition of the Directory is a compilation of entries for nearly 1800 scholarly lists and some 440 electronic journals, newsletters, and related titles such as newsletter-digests -- an increase in size of about 70% since the third edition of April 1993 and 3.5 times since the first edition of July 1991. The directory provides instructions for electronic access to each publication. The objective is to assist the user in finding relevant publications and connecting to them quickly, even if he or she is not completely versed in the full range of user-access systems. Diane Kovacs of the Kent State University Libraries continues to lead the KSU team -- nine individuals who collaboratively created the fourth edition's scholarly discussion lists and interest groups section. Principal compiler of the journals and newsletters section is Lisabeth A. King, Research Assistant for the ARL Office of Scientific & Academic Publishing, with support from Dru Mogge, Electronic Services Coordinator. Ann Okerson of the ARL/OSAP is overall project coordinator for the printed directory. The printed directory points to the widely available Kovacs files as the free-of-charge Internet sources for the discussion lists section. According to the OSAP, it is ARL's intent to make an abridged version of the journals section available on its Internet server as well, during summer, 1994. A diskette version will be available in June. The Fourth Edition is produced in 8.5 x 11 paperbound format in 588 pages. Scholarly lists are grouped by broad subject areas, and journals and newsletters are in alphabetical order. A substantial index of keywords, titles, and institutional affiliations is provided. As in the previous three years, frontmatter of value to electronic serial readers is included. A scholarly article, Geoffrey Nunberg's (Xerox PARC) "The Places of Books in the Age of Electronic Representation," reprinted with permission from the University of California Press journal Representations (Spring 1993) leads. It is followed by other commissioned articles related to electronic journals. Jean-Claude Guedon, co-editor of the electronic journal Surfaces and a specialist in the History of Science at the University of Montreal, contributes an essay on "categorizing" serials in a new medium. Birdie MacLennan of the University of Vermont has prepared a listing and assessment of sites for electronic serials that are maintained by various organizations on the Internet. Again, David Robison of NorthWestNet offers an updated annual bibliography of articles on electronic publishing. A new addition is Steve Outing's early listing of newspapers available on the Internet, a project he has begun and hopes to expand in detail. The Association of Research Libraries is a not-for-profit organization representing 119 research libraries in the United States and Canada. Its mission is to identify and influence forces affecting the future of research libraries in the process of scholarly communication. ARL programs and services promote equitable access to, and effective use of recorded knowledge in support of teaching, research, scholarship, and community service. These programs include annual statistical publications, federal relations and information policy, and enhancing access to scholarly information resources through telecommunications, collection development, preservation, and bibliographic control. The Office of Scientific and Academic Publishing works to identify and influence the forces affecting the production, dissemination, and use of scholarly and scientific information. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Pricing: $54.00, PLUS postage/shipping/handling (inquire for rates depending on country) Discount: To ARL member libraries (inquire) All orders must be prepaid in U.S. Dollars only, or we accept MasterCard and Visa. ========================================================================= Date: Sun, 22 May 1994 20:38:52 EDT Reply-To: IAN.WORTHINGTON@classics.utas.edu.au Sender: "Publishing E-Journals : Publishing, Archiving, and Access" From: IAN.WORTHINGTON@classics.utas.edu.au Subject: *EA* announcement ----------------------------Original message---------------------------- NOTICE ----------- *ELECTRONIC ANTIQUITY: COMMUNICATING THE CLASSICS* Peter Toohey (Founding Editor) Ian Worthington (Editor) We would like to announce the following editorial board of *EA*: Jenny Strauss-Clay (Virginia) Elaine Fantham (Princeton) Joseph Farrell (Pennsylvania) Sallie Goetsch (Michigan) Mark Golden (Winnipeg) Peter Green (Austin) William Harris (Columbia) Brad Inwood (Toronto) Barry Powell (Wisconsin) Harold Tarrant (Newcastle, NSW) The editors welcome submissions to the journal, and aim to have articles peer-refereed and, if accepted, published within 1-2 months.
