To Hardy, Eric and everyone on the list,
Now that SHAKSPER has its own website, with soon-to-be-searchable
archives (thanks again for all the hard work!), something occurred to me
which I decided to run by the list.
The SHARP-L list website runs the following on the page introducing its
searchable archive. I wonder if SHAKSPER should consider something
"The SHARP-L archives contain every message posted to SHARP's discussion
list from its beginnings in March of 1992 to the present. Containing as
they do the informal daily give-and-take of hundreds of scholars from
all over the world, these archives represent a unique scholarly resource
for historians of print culture. The SHARP-L records are now easily
searchable in their unedited entirety by word, phrase, subject, date, or
"Making these archives available to the scholarly community via SHARP
Web in no way implies, however, that they are in the public domain or
are unprotected by the laws of copyright. To the contrary: in making use
of them you must always remember that THE COPYRIGHT OF EACH POSTED
MESSAGE BELONGS TO ITS AUTHOR.
"If you would like to quote from or reproduce a SHARP-L posting in an
article or monograph or anywhere else, please request permission from
its author and include a citation to its source. Guides to citation of
electronic sources such as the ones by Nancy Crane and Xia Li and Melvin
Page can help with the format of this essential scholarly courtesy."
Just a thought, perhaps for the future if not now.
