The Riverside Shakespeare is available on WordCruncher in formats for
CDRom or PC.  You should contact Johnston & Company, Electronic Publishers
& Consultants, P.O. Box 448, American Fork, Utah 84003 (Phone:801-756-1111)
or (FAX 801-756-0242).  For a useful discussion of the WordCruncher and
Oxford formats, see "Electronic Texts in English and American Literature"
by Anita Lowry in *Library Trends* Spring 1992, pp. 706 ff.  The whole
issue of this journal is very useful as it focuses on Electronic Information
for the Humanities.

The Wordcruncher/Riverside edition has been used in exquisite ways by Mike
LoMonico, a SHAKSPER subscriber, for a variety of pedagogic ends.  If you are
plann ing detailed scholarly work, you might want to consult a variety of
corrections to the Wordcruncher versions that Ken Steele found and reported
here on SHAKSPER.  (Ken's labors are somewhere recorded in SHAKSPER files,
yes?)
 
[Yes, there are three files on the SHAKSPER FileServer regarding WordCruncher
and the Riverside Shakespeare.  They are Michael Lamonico's "Teaching
Shakespeare with a Computer" and "Seek Me Out By Computation" (COMPUTER
TEACHING), Ken Steele's listing of errors in the Electronic Text Corporation
WordCruncher Riverside Shakespeare (RIVERSID ERRORS), and Ken Steele's
"`Look What Thy Memory Cannot Contain': The Shakespeare Electronic Text
Archive."  _Shakespeare Bulletin_ 7:5 (September/October 1989): 25-8.
(WCRUNCHR SHAKSPER).
 
To obtain these files, send the following message to LISTSERV@UTORONTO.BITNET:
 
GET COMPUTER TEACHING SHAKSPER
GET RIVERSID ERRORS SHAKSPER
GET WCRUNCHR SHAKSPER SHAKSPER
 
For an updated version of the file that lists the contents of the SHASKPER
FileServer, add the command GET SHAKSPER FILES SHAKSPER to the list above.
 
If you have any problems, you may, of course, contact me at
