Subject: New on the SHAKSPER Fileserver
Today I have added three files to the "Reference Files" area of the
OXFORD ARCHIVE is an updated list of medieval and renaissance English
texts available through the Oxford Text Archive. This new version of
the file includes very valuable descriptive information, regarding the
origin and format of the texts available.
OXFORD BROCHURE is a general introduction to the Oxford Text Archive,
accompanied by order forms and ordering information.
WATERLOO TEXTBASE contains detailed information supplied by the
Centre for the New Oxford English Dictionary, at the University of
Waterloo, Ontario. The project has adapted the Oxford University Press
electronic Complete Works of William Shakespeare (modern spelling) for
use with the retrieval software used for the generation of the new OED.
This file also includes a summary of the project, which recently appeared
in *Canadian Humanities Computing* 4.3 (September 1990).
SHAKSPEReans can retrieve files or logbooks from the SHAKSPER
Fileserver by issuing the interactive command, "TELL LISTSERV
AT UTORONTO GET fname ftype SHAKSPER". If your network link does
not support the interactive "TELL" command, or if Listserv rejects
your request, then send a one-line mail message (without a subject
line) to LISTSERV@utoronto, reading "GET fname ftype SHAKSPER".
For a complete list of files available, send the command "GET
SHAKSPER FILES SHAKSPER" to obtain an annotated index. (Note that
the "INDEX SHAKSPER" and "GET FILELIST SHAKSPER" commands will
result in an *un*annotated list generated automatically by
Listserv. These lists include size information, but are less
legible to human eyes.)
