Dear Mr. Collins:
        Try the following command: get TESLEJ-L APAGUIDE TESLEJ-L
It worked for me.

Subject:      Ordering APAGUIDE
The listserver might be whacky, but you might try what I did, after
having my first request fail.  Use the hyper-precise syntax
like "get teslej-l apaguide teslej-l" (or whatever: I forget the
details), but use the third element that's hardly ever required on
VM/CMS systems.  That repeated specification made the difference:
the guide came on my second request.  Your mileage may vary.
Can't prove that there's actually any magic in the full spec.

The Interpsych Newsletter (IPN) is currently looking for editors and
contributors.  Both these postitions are described below.  As Interpsych
grows and expands in membership and function, we believe this newsletter
will be a central resource and will play an integral role in providing
cohesion between the different branches of the organization and its members.
 We look forward to working with Interpsych in defining and shaping the way
the internet is used in the next millenia.
Please do not post this message to any other list as we will be posting a
variant of it to the superlist later in the week.
Editors will be required to work on the newsletter on a regular basis.
Current plans are for the newsletter to be distributed on a monthly basis
and then move to a twice monthly format in the very near future. If you are
interested in working as an editor, please email me stating your interest
and outlining any relevant experience that you have had.  If you are
interested in working on a specific section, please specify which section
you are interested in working on (they are listed below).  However, as the
newsletter is currently in flux, specific committments cannot be made to
certain sections.
Contributors will work on an irregular basis as the needs of the newsletter
and their expertise dictate.  If you are interested in writing for any of
the sections mentioned below (or are interested in writing for the
newsletter with no specific section in mind), please email me outlining your
interest and relevant experience.
The following is a breakdown of what will be contained in the newsletter:
SECTION 0: Index
SECTION 1:  Mental health news
This section contains short articles on recent developments in the field
of mental health and relevant newstories.
SECTION 2:  Interpsych Update
This section serves both to keep people informed and also encourage
people to become active in the organization. This section contains two
general article types:
a) Short articles discussing current work being done at Interpsych,
 progress that has been made in plans etc.
b) Special Interest Groups (SIGs): This section contains short
summarizations of a topic of recent discussions in 4-6 SIGs.  The groups
will contribute on a rotating basis.  This section will also list new
SIGs  that have been created.
SECTION 3: Resource update
This section will describe a new site/resource and what it contains.  The
aim of this section is to encourage the use of resources currently
available on the net.
SECTION 4:  Research
This section has three subsections:
 a) a listing of the tables of contents of Interpsych's journals
 b) A "Call for collaborators"
 c) Articles
SECTION 5: Miscellaneous
This section will contain a general internet column and any other
contributions that do not fall into other categories.
SECTION 6: Calendar/announcements
This section lists conferences (physical/electronic) relevant to the
Interpsych audience and makes announcements.
SECTION 7:  Employment
 a) a subsection advertising jobs
 b) a subsection of people looking for work
SECTION 8: Letters

Subject:      Re: citation standards for e-journals
Perhaps citation standards should depend in part on how the journal
is packaged.
If a journal is distributed in graphical format, with consecutively
numbered pages throughout the volume, then it could (and I contend
should) be referenced by volume and page numbers, precisely as one
would reference an article in a print journal.
After all, citations for articles in print journals generally do not
contain information about the publisher. One is expected to look that
up, if necessary.

Subject:      Help on SGML.
To all concerned:
        I am in the process of learning SGML.  Can a kind soul please send
me a fully compliant SGML document.  One that includes the three major parts
of a SGML document: first the SGML Declaration, second the Document Type
Declaration (set), and finally the Document Instance.  I prefer one that does
not call the various parts externally, but includes all subparts (i.e., the
Reference Concrete Syntax, the markup declaration, etc.).  Of all the books I
read on SGML, I have never seen an example of a full SGML document.  I seen
many examples of DTD's, document instances, and of course the Reference
Concrete Syntax, but I've never seen them put together into one complete SGML
electronic document (file).  This is what I seek.  If you know of an FTP site
where such files exist please tell me.  However, please make sure that they
do exist.  All help in my education will be heartly appreciated.  My
e-address is below (and above I assume).
Thank you all,
C. Hurley
PS: The document can be on any subject, from beer nuts to specifications on
the Space Shuttle.

Subject:      Getting Files (APAGUIDE)
Re: the problems with TESLEJ-L's filelist--there was a conflicting file on
the same listserver. The other list had a file called * A*, (with 0
filerecords) which means that any filerequest with the second name beginning
with *A* would get a message sent out saying it wasn't ready yet. The
offending file has been removed, and I have tried retrieving TESLEJ-L
APAGUIDE without specifying the listname and it arrives safely. Thanks
for your help--as it turns out, this other list on CMSA is a big problem.

I believe there are commercial packages available on the market. But if
the format of your documents is not complicated, you can write a WP or
Word macro to do the conversion. If you know UNIX, you can write a sed script
to do it.

As part of the Project ELVYN research project
<url:http: elvyn="" hill.lut.ac.uk="" teststuff=""></url:http:> (that URL is ``temporary'' so
don't use it for long term citations and links) I implemented a CoST
(Copenhagen SGML Tool) script to translate articles conforming to a
publisher's full SGML DTD into HTML documents.  It was fairly painless,
but then I'm a code junkie; it might not be the sort of thing you're after
if you've not done any programming.
The main thing I though I should point out is that with CoST (and
practically any other system out there), you need to hack something up for
each DTD you use.  If you've only got one DTD and it doesn't change then
you'll be fine.  Otherwise expect to have to rehash the code for each DTD
or varient of the same DTD.  This is one BIG reason why all publishers
considering electronic journals and books using SGML should be locked
together in a small, dark room until they agree on a common DTD.  If
libraries and other users have to handle multiple DTDs (and, even worse
IMHO, multiple bits of processing software), electronic documents will
never fly (well, not from traditional publishers anyway).

Announcement of a New Refereed Electronic Journal:
the electronic journal of information contexts
                                Edited by Kathleen Burnett and Hur-Li Lee
                                Technical editor, Rebecca Pressman
        The theme of the 1994 ALISE (Association of Library and Information
Science Education) conference in Los Angeles, "Intellectual Diversity:
Cross Disciplinary Connections and Perspectives" reflects the growing interest
library educators have in acknowledging the urgent need for broader and more
diversified approaches to library and information studies.  Among the
topics discussed at the conference were various perspectives--such as
multiculturalism and feminist stand point theory--and alternative research
methodologies--such as ethnography. While these perspectives and approaches
are not new to the field, the  conference amplified voices which were
previously only whispers buried in the chatter.
        The cry for change in our field has permeated the professional
literature.  The scholarly literature, however, has been slow in responding.
For example, on one hand, many librarians have questioned the persistence of
status and pay inequities in librarianship; on the other hand, very few
studies have so far incorporated solid feminist theory into scholarly inquiry.
One barrier that prevents researchers from generating such scholarship
is lack of incentive. Positivist models still dominate the research
paradigms of the field. Researchers are reluctant to engage in
projects that employ alternative perspectives due to perceived
difficulties in obtaining funding and scholarly recognition.
Qualitative studies may not be valued by positivist reviewers and
therefore be rejected for publication. Tenure committees may not look
favorably on less well-established methodologies and may be suspicious
of interdisciplinary efforts.
        Some of us who attended the 1994 ALISE conference see the need for
creating a new forum that will provide an open environment for different
voices representing a variety of points of view on and approaches to a wide
range of concerns in the library and information field.  We plan to publish
+Standpoints: the Electronic Journal of Information Contexts+. This
refereed electronic journal will be interdisciplinary, rather than
disciplinary, and inclusive, rather than exclusive, in nature. It
welcomes any sound research that deals with issues related to
information contexts. Preference will be given to those studies taking
non-traditional perspectives and/or approaches; to studies asking
questions starting from lives of a wider variety of people; and to
studies exhibiting interdisciplinarity. It is the sincere hope of the
editors that the publication of this journal will add diversity to our
field and contribute to its scholarly development.
        +Standpoints: the Electronic Journal of Information Contexts+ will
be published quarterly. Kathleen Burnett and Hur-Li Lee, both affiliated with
the School of Communication, Information, and Library Studies, Rutgers
University, will serve as co-editors. Publication of the first issue is
tentatively set for January 1995.  Each issue will consist of two general
sections, one for scholarly articles, and another for book reviews and
letters. Primary distribution of  +Standpoints+ will be through a WorldWideWeb
server. Unlike many first-generation electronic journals, we encourage
multimedia submissions in html format.
        We are also seeking Associate Editors. Those interested in submitting
manuscripts or serving as associate editors should contact Kathy at
kburnett@gandalf.rutgers.edu and Hur-Li at hurlee@eden.rutgers.edu, or
send snail-mail to the attention of the editors at:
Rutgers University
School of Communication, Information & Library Studies
4 Huntington St.
New Brunswick, New Jersey 08903
        Subscription information will be forthcoming prior to the
publication of the first issue.  Meanwhile, we welcome any suggesions
or comments.

For Immediate Release: October 22, 1994
Strangelove Press publishes
An Introduction to Internet-Facilitated Marketing and Advertising
On Friday October 21, 1994 Strangelove Press delivered hundreds of
copies of the long awaited book, HOW TO ADVERTISE ON THE
INTERNET, to the main postal station in Ottawa, Ontario. Over a year
in writing and research went into the production of the book, which
suffered a delay due to a wrist injury (carpal tunnel syndrome) in the
right hand of the book's primary author, Michael Strangelove. Within a
few days customers who have waited patiently over the past months will
be receiving the first book on the basics of Internet-facilitated
Michael Strangelove, publisher of THE INTERNET BUSINESS
JOURNAL, and the Journal's Editor-in-Chief, Aneurin Bosley. Written
by the Publisher and Editor of the oldest publication for the commercial
destined to be the definitive teaching tool and reference work for the
Internet advertising and marketing industry. Designed to be both a how-
to manual and an industry reference source, this book contains the
        27 resources and services for tracking Internet demographics
        7 key tactics for marketing through online conferences
        150 Internet resources for advertising and marketing
        17 Internet advertising tools explained
        144 visual images from the Internet
        138 Internet stores and products
This comprehensive guide features the largest directory of Internet
advertising and marketing agencies available anywhere in print as well
as a directory of 182 Internet trainers and consultants.
HOW TO ADVERTISE ON THE INTERNET also includes a major
theoretical exploration of the Internet as a catalyst for a paradigm sift
and explains how this shift will change the nature of business and
advertising as we approach the third millennium. In keeping with the
golden rule of Internet advertising -- give back something of value to
the community -- the publisher has made this essay freely available to
the Internet (send e-mail to mstrange@fonorola.net with the message
PARADIGM SHIFT in the subject line, or gopher to fonorola.net).
HOW TO ADVERTISE ON THE INTERNET is a pro-active measure
intended to educate the commercial Internet community on how to
conduct business on the Net and profit from interacting with Internet
consumers. In simple language free of both the technical jargon of the
Internet and the industry jargon of marketers, this book explains
advertising tools and techniques that respect Internet cultural norms.
Readers will learn how to profit from the Internet while also positively
contributing to the development of cyberspace as a public resource. The
authors have no wish to support the rise of "door-to-door" salespeople
in cyberspace and have therefore intentionally censored information
from this book on firms that sell Internet e-mail addresses and consult
in bulk unsolicited e-mail advertising.
A year ago, when we announced our intention to publish a book on how
to advertise on the Internet, our e-mail boxes where flooded with
thousands of letters from the Internet community expressing concern for
the protection of the unique cultural ethos of the Internet. We have
made every effort to ensure that this book is a landmark of the new era
of responsible commercial activity in cyberspace.

*Electronic Antiquity* Vol. 2 Issue 3 - October 1994

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.
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).
Access is via gopher or ftp.
The journal file name of this issue is 2,3-October1994.
Previous issues may also be accessed in the same way.
-- info.utas.edu.au and through gopher:
-- open top level document called Publications
-- open Electronic Antiquity.
-- open 2,3-October1994
-- open (01)contents first for list of contents, then other files as appropriate
-- 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 2,3-October1994
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.
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.

In light of the fact that Harper/Collins is releasing a book by the
notorious "Green Card" lawyers on advertising on the Internet, I was very
interested to hear about Dr. Strangelove's book.  I wonder if it will be
more sensitive to the culture of the Internet and of Usenet than Canter
and Siegel's approach.  So, I guess I'm not disturbed that Dr.
Strangelove used VPIEJ-L to announce his book.  So far, it's the only one
of the lists or newsgroups to which I belong that I have seen it
mentioned.  Altogether a more civilized approach than the "spamming" of
the net that Canter & Siegel did with the green card ad.

>>An Introduction to Internet-Facilitated Marketing and
I personally was pleased to hear about Michael Strangelove's new
book. However, I believe the key to whether a message such as his
should be posted on to any particular list is whether it is
relevant to the *majority* of list members. There are a number of
lists (e.g. INET-MARKETING and HEP2-L) which are specifically
devoted to Internet Marketing and I imagine Michael posted his
message to these and received a warm welcome.
Lists such as VPIEJ are a more of a grey area. I haven't done an
analysis of the membership of this list, but I suspect that the
largest single group of members are librarians, most of whom are
unlikely to be getting involved in advertising on the Internet
Perhaps just a two line message and contact details on lists such
as these in future, Michael. What do others think?

I wonder why anyone would suspect this.
As for Strangelove's book, it does seem relevant to the topic of electronic
publishing (advertising is a kind of publication, after all)...although
perhaps a less "commercial" seeming message might have gone over better.

Subject:      Re: Strangelove's ad
I agree that Strangelove's "ad" posted to VPIEJ-L does indeed fall in
a gray area. The beauty of the net is that if he made a mistake, hundreds,
if not thousands of people, will let him know.
As far as the point that since this is a "How to Do Business" work that
we librarians would not find it of use, I immediately forwarded the announce-
ment to our collection development officer for purchase not because I wanted
or needed it personally, but that our patrons would find such a work of use.
I will state unambiguously that I would NOT recommend purchase of Cantor and
Siegel's(infamous net-spamming immigration lawyers) upcoming work. The dif-
ference is that being familiar with the net, Strangelove's work, and Cantor
and Siegel's work, I feel Strangelove's products will more accurately rep-
resent and direct our business students/patrons on how to "do it" the right
Of course, I could be wrong! Wouldn't be the first time . . .
Oh. On second thought, I actually MIGHT get Cantor and Siegel's work for
historic purposes (kind of like getting KKK tracts for sociologists, eh?).
Given a limited budget, Strangelove wins over Cantor and Siegel.
