just been awarded a grant from the American Academy

Ottawa. The project is jointly sponsored by the
religious studies departments of the University of
Ottawa and Carleton University.

The CONTENTS Project is now entering its tenth
month of operation. The project is the first all
electronic, network disseminated serial for religious
studies that seeks to explore the use of Listserv and
FTP databases as the foundation for the archiving and
dissemination of religious studies publications
information, as well as original scholarly and
pedagogical research material.

The CONTENTS Project also electronically republishes
religious studies related bulletins and newsletters, such
as the Thesaurus Linguae Graecae Newsletter and the
Bulletin of the General Theological Library of Bangor
Theological Seminary.

The project disseminates via Listserv the table of
contents of journals relevant to religious studies.
Presently, the following journals are participating in
this aspect of the project:
