Humanist Mailing List, Vol. 2, No. 766. Saturday, 25 Mar 1989.

Date: Friday, 24 March 1989 1053-EST
Subject: Archives List Supplement

The following list of (possible) archive type endeavors
has been garnered from HUMANIST responses and other sources
(I did more homework!) since the initial list appeared.
Any further information (corrections, deletions, additions,
etc.) relevant to the list is welcome!

With regard to commercial publishers such as OUP, and also
software distributors who package materials otherwise also
available from an archive (e.g. Linguists Software for Mac),
your advice is needed. I am tempted to include the publishers
and other commercial entities if they contribute items to the
pool of relevant data -- thus OUP qualifies, and probably
several others for which I do not yet have reliable
information (e.g. Zondervan, Collins). Similarly, the
CD-ROM collections from Ellis, FABS, Microsoft, and elsewhere
would seem to me to deserve mention. But developers who
rely on material from elsewhere, and do not contribute data
to the pool, would not be listed. Reactions? Suggestions?
