Re: 3.907 new software: Tally

While I wish to encourage announcements of software
and hardware of interest to computing humanists, I
for one would appreciate it if they would specify system
compatibility and any other configuration requirements.

< SIGUCCS User Services Conference XVIII
< Call For Participation
< New Centerings in Computing Services
< September 30 through October 3, 1990
< Westin Hotel
< Cincinnati, Ohio
<<Attention Directors, Managers, Analysts, Consultants, Programmers,
<<Technical Writers, Trainers, and Librarians!
<<The higher education computing scene in the 1990s will present exciting
<<challenges. To accommodate users' needs, computing service organizations
<<are now visibly transforming in function and structure. The widespread
<<adoption of personal computing by all disciplines, the increasing demand
<<for desktop access to shared resources, the growth in demand for
<<supercomputing capabilities, and the proliferation of powerful desktop
<<workstations exert irresistible forces on central computing services.
<<In response, the central site grows exponentially in staff and machinery
<<at one academic institution; at another, the computing center is disbanded
<<to provide distributed computing! At some sites increasing specialization
<<is urged; at others, generalization is required. Regardless of the
<<transforming strategy adopted by an individual institution, one fact
<<seems clear: the user is the center toward which all computing services
<<are directed.
<<SIGUCCS '90 invites you to participate in the examination and discussion
<<of the myriad challenges facing user services professionals as we enter a
<<new decade and of the new centerings computing service organizations are
<<discovering to meet them. Please join us!

[A complete version of this announcement is now available on
the file-server, s.v. SIGUCCS CONFRNCE. A copy may be obtained
by issuing the command -- GET filename filetype HUMANIST -- either
interactively or as a batch-job, addressed to ListServ@UToronto and
*not* to Humanist. Thus on a VM/CMS system, you say interactively:
TELL LISTSERV AT UTORONTO GET filename filetype HUMANIST; to submit
a batch-job, send mail to ListServ@UToronto with the GET command as
the first and only line. For more details see your "Guide to Humanist".
Problems should be reported to David Sitman, A79@TAUNIVM, after you
have consulted the Guide and tried all appropriate alternatives.]
