Subject: 	Electronic Bulletin Boards or Special Interest Groups
 
Does anyone know of a convenient list of Special Interest Groups or
Electronic Bulletin Boards devoted to literary topics/authors?

There are a number of useful guides to network discussion groups of
varying exhaustiveness and convenience.  The most exhaustive, and
hence least convenient, is the Global list available directly from any
backbone Listserv site.  Send the command "LIST GLOBAL" to
<Listserv@utoronto> (for example), and you'll receive a list of
several thousand Listserv discussion groups ranging from morris
dancing to yachting.
 
Diane Kovacs has prepared a series of carefully-indexed files confined
to academic topics, available as ACADLIST FILE1, ACADLIST FILE2,
ACADLIST FILE3, ACADLIST README, and ACADLIST INDEX from the ARACHNET
Fileserver, and also I believe available as ACADEMIC LIST1 and
ACADEMIC LIST2 on the HUMANIST Fileserver.  The subjects covered range
from engineering and biology to literature, but the descriptions are
sometimes unhelpful (the SHAKSPER one is a case in point).  Considerably
less exhaustive but more convenient are the files BITNET LISTS on the
HUMANIST Fileserver, and LISTSERV GROUPS on the FICINO Fileserver.
 
MOST convenient AND exhaustive, however, for the purposes of most
SHAKSPEReans, is the file announced in SHK 2.0227 last month: the
SHAKSPER List of Bitnet Discussion Groups.  I have culled this index
from all of the above sources, and sorted them into three categories:
Medieval & Renaissance topics, Theatre and Film topics, and Literary
Topics.  A final section offers general information on Listserv
procedures such as subscribing, unsubscribing, and altering your
membership settings.  This listing is as exhaustive as I could make
it, including Internet UNIX Newsgroups as well as Bitnet ListServs
where relevant.
 
If anyone out there is aware of other useful lists, or has suggestions
or additions to make to this file, I would be most eager to hear from
you.
