I have just received the following from a Humanist in Australia. If
anyone knows of a good USENET group for him or, better, knows how
Humanist might be sent to him as if it were on USENET, please let both
of us know. Those who have been on Humanist for a time may remember the
previous departure of members from that part of the world, also because
of the high cost of e-mail.

It is with *great* regret that I must ask you to remove my name from the
HUMANIST list. I have encountered the same barriers that your former
New Zealand correspondents found - namely, the high cost of e-mail to this
far-flung corner of the world.

The computer centre has just advised me that the communications bill for May
has come to A$ 155 - an unsustainable amount for my college.

I am sorry about this - perhaps I will be able to resume my membership at a
later stage.

Andrew Treloar.

PS. Do you know of any conferences on USENET that would be of interest to
someone involved in the humanities? (We get USENET for free...)

Author's Query

We are beginning the process of compiling a guide to the use of
the MLA Bibliography in all its formats (print, online, CD-ROM),
and all its historical incarnations (1921 to the present). The
guide is designed to acquaint humanities scholars and students
with techniques that will allow the most effective and complete
use of this rather complex reference tool.

I would appreciate hearing from anyone who would like to con-
tribute examples of searches - successful or otherwise - in the
MLA Bibliography, as well as anyone who has used the bibliography
extensively who would like to suggest topics for coverage in this
