Request for Information for SHAKSPER Fileserver
Shakespeare Electronic Conference, Vol. 3, No. 150. Wednesday, 24 June 1992.

Date:           Wednesday, June 24, 1992
Subject:        Request for Information for SHAKSPER Fileserver
 
SHAKSPEReans last week I sent a note describing the contents of the SHAKSPER
Fileserver.  At that time, I made a request for scholarly papers to be mounted
on the Fileserver.  Today, I would like to broaden that appeal.
 
One of the many functions of SHAKSPER is to transmit quickly obsolescent
material to Shakespearean scholars.  Such materials would include calls for
papers, announcements and reviews of recent publications and productions,
discussions of textual cruxes, information about new discoveries (documentary
and archeological), and work in progress.  Some of these constitute the
everyday traffic of SHAKSPER; others more appropriately belong in files on the
Fileserver.
 
One example of the latter is the CONFERNC DIRECTRY.  This file is designed to
be a continually-updated directory of calls for papers and conference
announcements relevant to Shakespearean and Renaissance studies.  To keep this
file up-to-date, please send any announcements of such events to the editor,
<

 > or <SHAKSPER@utoronto.bitnet>, who will circulate
the announcement first as a posting on SHAKSPER and then will add it to
CONFERNC DIRECTORY file on the SHAKSPER Fileserver.
 
Another such files is the DIRECTRY INSTITUT: a directory of Shakespearean
institutes, organizations, journals, and libraries.  Again, any additions are
welcome.
 
Ken Steele also envisioned a Fileserver file dedicated to Works in Progress.
In November 1991, Ken wrote, " . . . more traditional print media have not
been able to provide up-to-date indexes of dissertations, articles, and books
in progress, in manuscript, and in press.  Such information could help
scholars avoid duplication of effort, and could provide valuable contacts for
specific information not yet available."  I think this is a splendid idea and
would like to make this file a reality.  To do so, I need SHAKSPEReans to send
me, <

 >, private messages describing their work in
progress for this file.

Fileserver Procedures:
 
SHAKSPEReans can retrieve any of the above files from the SHAKSPER
Fileserver by issuing the interactive command, "TELL LISTSERV
AT UTORONTO GET <filename> <filetype> SHAKSPER".  If your network link does
not support the interactive "TELL" command (i.e. if you are not
directly on Bitnet), or if Listserv rejects your request, then send a
one-line mail message (without a subject line) to LISTSERV@utoronto,
reading "GET <filename> <filetype> SHAKSPER".
 
For an updated version of this list, send the command "GET
SHAKSPER FILES SHAKSPER" in the same fashion.
