Subject: Job for posting on Humanist

Dear Professor McCarty,

At the Mississippi Department of Archives and History we are staffing
for an electronic records research grant from the National Historical
Publications and Records Commission. I don't know if it's considered
kosher to post job ads on Humanist, but given the recent discussions
on training I thought Humanist might be a very good place to attract
the kinds of staff members we need. Anyway, I enclose the notice
below, and if it is possible to post it I would like to have it
posted. Many thanks,

Patricia Galloway
