Humanist Mailing List, Vol. 2, No. 737. Friday, 17 Mar 1989.

Date: Friday, 17 March 1989 0016-EST
Subject: Archive List

Attached is a list of electronic "archive-type" endeavors that
a group of us who are interested in getting a better handle on
what is "out there" has drawn together (names below). The main
focus for this "first pass" is to spread the nets widely and
attempt to IDENTIFY those endeavors that actually or potentially
have the intention (selfimage) of serving as a resource for others.
We need your HELP to make the list as accurate and complete as
possible at this stage. Please notify KRAFT@PENNDRLS of any
errors, omissions, etc., and if possible supply the name and
address (electronic, preferably) of any known contact person.

I apologize for the inconsistencies, errors, oversights, etc.,
in the list. The main catalyst for preparing the list has been
the hope that something could be circulated at the forthcoming
ACH-ALLC Toronto meetings, in connection with the Archive Panel
to be held then. The procedures envisioned are noted below.

Thanks to all, Bob Kraft (for the group named below)


Draft Updated 16 March 1989 Robert Kraft (CCAT),
in cooperation with Marianne Gaunt (Rutgers), Lou Burnard (Oxford),
Joseph Raben (CUNY), and Mike Neuman (Georgetown), among others.

The plan is to maintain the List in three different forms:

(1) Simple identifying titles of actual or potential archives
or archive-type endeavors --
by "archive-type" we mean actual or potential sources of relevant
data for humanistic research and teaching;

(2) Intermediate List with as much of the basic information listed
below as can be ascertained;

0. Identifying Acronym or Short Reference
1. Name and Affiliation of Operation
Reference to any published description?
2. Contact Person and Addresses (including e-mail)
3. Primary Focus (+ Secondary Interests)
[e.g. Literature, Language, Linguistics, Music, Art, Biog.]
4. Time Period Covered, Geographical Focus
5. Language(s) coded [or used otherwise -- e.g. data fields]
6. Intended Use(s)
[e.g. Textbank, Database, Scholarly Tools, Bibliography]
7. File Format(s) (sequential text, data base excerpts, etc.)
To what extent are the formats consistent?
8. Form(s) of Access (online, tape, diskette, CD-ROM, etc.)
What software is needed for accessing?
9. Source(s) of the Archival Holdings
Encoded in-house, or obtained from elsewhere (where)?

(3) Comprehensive List (long-range goal), including detailed inventory
of holdings, information on copyright status, full bibliography,
descriptive keywords, coding(s) and markup used, pricing, etc.

The basic list has been organized geographically, to facilitate
identification and encourage completeness.

Subsequent forms of the list will pay more attention to sub-categories
of data and group the archives accordingly -- e.g. general archives,
text/language archives, graphic data (archaeology, art, cartography,
etc.), biographical and demographic data, etc.
