Subject:	Exciting News: Shakespeare on the Internet
 
Many and sincere thanks to Peter Scott and Zip Kellogg for the
following responses to the Internet query.  I think many of us will
agree that this news is both welcome and exciting, and my only regret
is that it somehow failed to come up previously on SHAKSPER.  As soon
as I receive complete documentation of some kind, I will happily post
it on the SHAKSPER Fileserver for access by all!

Shakespeare's plays and sonnets are available by Telnet to:
 
lib.dartmouth.edu
 
Use the SELECT FILE feature to choose which database you wish to
access.
 
I will post, in a few days, the instructions for  accessing
Shakespeare on a Wide Area Information Server at the NSF.

This turned up on another network and may be of interest to "SHAKSPEReans":

Steven Gerstle inquired about the availability of Shakespeare on the
Internet.  Dartmouth has the full text of 33 Shakespeare plays in one
database and all of his sonnets in another.  All available for full
text searching through TELNET to LIB.DARTMOUTH.EDU.  The following is
a capture of the beginning of a TELNET session to Dartmouth:

Subject: 	Re: Shakespeare on internet?
 
The Dartmouth College Library Online System includes two full text files:
Shakespeare Plays and Shakespeare Sonnets.  They're public domain (we got'em
for about $200!) and therefore aren't passworded; anyone can access them.
 
To reach us via internet:  address is:
 
     lib.dartmouth.edu
 
That gets you into D C L O S, where the default file is "Catalog" (books et
al; serials; on-order/in process); one then types "select file (or 'sel fil')
Shakespeare plays" (or sonnets) to access.  There are lots of help & explain
screens.  "Bye" is the standard exit command, but it will also accept End or
Logoff or Exit.

I believe that these are available along with many, many others at
gutnberg@uiucvmd, Project Gutenberg.
 
It is the first place I would check for any public domain etexts.

Charles, please add Dr. Hart's email address to the note I just sent
re etexts available from Project Gutenberg.  As he is the one in charge
of it, the questioner may wish to contact him directly.

Steven Gerstle,
 
        To reach the full text of both Shakespeare's major plays
and his sonnets, dial in to MELVYL (642-7400 for 1200bps, 642-6092 for
2400bps -- the call is local and free for you), enter "use dartmouth",
and once at Dartmouth enter "SELECT FILE SHAKESPEARE PLAYS" (or
"SONNETS").
 
        You can dial Dartmouth direct, but for you it would be
easier and cheaper to go via the MELVYL gateway.
 
Best wishes,
 
Jack Kessler
