Shakespeare Electronic Conference, Vol. 1, No. 109. Monday, 19 Nov 1990.
Date: Mon, 19 Nov 90 21:08:27 EST
Subject: New on the SHAKSPER Fileserver
Today three new files have been placed on the SHAKSPER Fileserver, and
they are now available for retrieval by all members.
SHAKSPER GUIDE has been entirely rewritten and reorganized, incorporating
the numberous changes in SHAKSPER since its original conception,
clarifying command instructions for Listserv, and outlining more
clearly the areas in which members can contribute to the conference.
SPINOFF BIBLIO is the first version of the bibliography of Shakespearean
"spinoffs", being compiled by Lawrence Schimel of Yale University
<SCHLAWD@Yalevm>. Members are invited to submit corrections and
additions to Lawrence Schimel or to SHAKSPER itself. A second version
of this bibliography is in preparation, taking into account this
month's discussion on SHAKSPER.
CHARACTR BIBLIO is the first version of a bibliography of works in
which Shakespeare figures as a character, also compiled by Lawrence
Schimel. Corrections and additions are also most welcome.
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.)
