Subject: INTERNET Guides

This announcement is being sent to several lists. My apologies for the
inconvenient but necessary duplication.

The second edition of "Electronic Communication and the Humanities Scholar" is
now available for anonymous ftp. It's new title is "Electronic
Communication on the UNIX." It has been significantly revised to include
advanced as well as basic INTERNET functions. Intended as a detailed guide
for faculty INTERNET workshops, it includes the following chapters:

What is the INTERNET?
Logging on to the UNIX System
Sending Mail
Reading Mail
Subscribing to Electronic Lists and Electronic Journals
Saving, Printing, and Downloading
Connecting to Remote Sites (Telnet)
Retrieving Files Stored in Another Computer (FTP)
Gopher and Veronica
Creating and Managing Files
Logging Off
Discussion Group Lists: Humanities
Electronic Journals

The guide is approximately 60 pages, and was designed to illustrate why the
INTERNET is valuable for humanities research. It contains the e-mail
addresses and names for over 200 humanities lists, hierarchically arranged
by subject. A complementary guide was written to train faculty on our
campus wide information system (known as GWIS). Similar guides have been
written for social science faculty.

The anonymous ftp address for these guides is: gwuvm.gwu.edu

The individual file names are:

"Electronic Communication on the UNIX" bitwork.fac
"Humanities Databases and Resources on GWIS" gwis.hum
"Advanced INTERNET Functions: A Guide for
Social Scientists" internet.ss
"Social Science Databases and Resources
on GWIS" gwis.ss

All of these files were composed in WordPerfect and have detailed charts,
graphics, and boxes. Hence it cannot be ftp'd as an ASCII file. You must
issue the "binary" command before the "get" command, and have software on
your campus mainframe to transfer it intact as a binary file to your pc.

If you have any questions or suggestions for future editions, please let me
