Subject:  	The Humanities Bulletin Board (HUMBUL)
 
Dear All,
 
The majority of you are probably well aware of the existence of HUMBUL
(The HUManities BULletin Board), which used to reside at Leicester University,
but has recently moved to Oxford University Computing Services. For those of
you, however, who are not familiar with the service I am releasing the
following introductory paragraphs, plus details of the new logging on
procedures.
 
HUMBUL is a long-running service aimed at providing academics and interested
parties with news and information on Humanities Computing. The service is an
on-line bulletin board, subdivided into numerous sections, for which
subscription is free. Information is collected from all the applicable
electronic networks, plus periodicals, leaflets, and also direct requests to
the editor.
 
Interaction with the board itself is fairly easy and new users should read
about HUMBUL under section A. To facilitate using some of the longer sections
there is a Search facility inherent in the program. Users can send mail
directly to the editor via the command MAIL or ask for specific sections to be
sent to them via POST. At regular intervals Section S (the Stop Press) will be
forwarded on to all users to remind them of the most recent additions.
 
Should you require any further help then please contact me as indicated in the
section below,
 
Stuart Lee
HUMBUL Editor
CTI Centre for Textual Studies and the Office for Humanities Communication,
Oxford University Computing Services

Fileserver Procedures:
 
SHAKSPEReans can retrieve the complete text file from the SHAKSPER
Fileserver by issuing the interactive command, "TELL LISTSERV
AT UTORONTO GET HUMBUL ANNOUNCE 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 HUMBUL ANNOUNCE SHAKSPER".
 
For a complete list of files available, send the command "GET
SHAKSPER FILES SHAKSPER" to obtain an annotated index.
 
For further information, consult the appropriate section of your
SHAKSPER GUIDE, or contact the editor, <
