Greetings to you all,

Please excuse the cross posting of this message.

I would like to announce the release of the newest version of NetSERF, an
index of medieval resources on the Internet. It's aim is to bring together
as many medieval resources together into one index as is possible.

There are currently nine major sections, with numerous subdivisions. I have
also attempted to cross-index resources which would fit under more than one

NetSERF's Table of Content:

Medieval Art and Architecture
Medieval Art
Manuscript Images / Sculpture / Tapestries / Other

Also you can check out NetSERF's Cool Medieval Site of the Week.

Imporvements and new sites are being added almost daily. Coming soon:

Also the indexed sites will be available divided by country, region, city
and time period.

I hope you all enjoy NetSERF. I hope you will let me know if there are
things which you would like to see added to it.

Subject: ARTFL Encyclopedie Project

The ARTFL Project is currently developing an on-line version of Diderot
and d'Alembert's _Encyclopedie, ou Dictionnaire raisonne des sciences, des
metiers et des arts_. This version will eventually include all seventeen
volumes of text and eleven volumes of plates that composed the first
edition. At the present time, we are offering free public access to the
prototype of the first volume.


PLEASE NOTE that this prototype does not include all of the functions that
will be part of the final version, all formatting and structural identification
to date has been completed by automated procedures, and the text has not yet
been proof-read and corrected. This means that a certain number of errors
will occur, both in the text itself and in functioning of the database.
We feel, nevertheless, that the prototype provides a fair idea of some
of the new possibilities that the on-line environment creates for readers
and scholars of the _Encyclopedie_.

Please send your comments, suggestions and bug reports to me.
