One of my graduate students, Mariann Woodward, has made several updates
to the "SHAKSPER Directory of Shakespearean Organizations, Institutes,
Projects & Journals" (DIRECTRY INSTITUT) file.  I still have to add
information from Jean-Marie Maguin and James Harner, but still many of
the other entries are still out of date.  I have appended the file
below.  If you have information about these (including SAA) or any other
items that should be included, please send that information to me.  If
you are simply not interested, please hit the delete button now.

                   (lemmas) -- permits distinctions among the uses of
                   individual word types (e.g. Database distinguishes
                   between such uses of "love" as common noun,
                   verb, root of a contraction, and component of a
                   hyphenated term.) Options: string search;
                   concordance; dictionary; indexing; parsing;
                   collating; "grammatical windowing".  Spevack's
                   *Concordance to Shakespeare* [1968-1980] and
                   Leisi and Wolff's *Chronological English
                   Dictionary* [1970] were used in the
                   computer-assisted lemmatization procedure to
                   produce the dictionary entries.  Project uses a
                   Pr1me 250-II computer and CODASYL-DBMS
                   software. Components of the database are being
