The following will be of interest to all those working in speech and/or
NLP. You may have heard that Sun is about to release its Javaspeech
API that can use all the major speech rec programs, but you may not be
aware that there are already test versions available at their web site,
and that they have estpablished an email discussion group for those who
are interested.

Subject: neologisms

Many Humanists will, I am sure, be delighted to find that the Research and
Development for English Studies, University of Liverpool, is "providing a
series of lists of neologisms in context for the benefit of teachers of
English language", at <http://www.rdues.liv.ac.uk/newwds.html>. Their source
is the Independent, for which see <http://www.independent.co.uk/>. Some of
you will know about the research behind the detection of neologisms and of
their use to track the process of word- and expression-formation in English
over time; a bibliography is provided at
<http://www.rdues.liv.ac.uk/newwds/aviator_bibl.html>. What's online is most
entertaining, but the possibilities for taking the pulse of the public, as
it were, has all sorts of implications. If we betray what we're thinking
about through word-usage in our newspapers, then we can be offered what we
are already giving signs that we want, yes?

As the MUSEUMS & THE WEB conference nears (April 22-25, Toronto) and the
deadline for discounted registration (Feb. 28) is only days away, here are
two reminders of conference events: the popular "Best of the Web" contest
for museum web sites (six categories, including "Best Overall," won last
year by San Francisco's Exploratorium <www.exploratorium.org>), and an
innovative online exhibit, "Beyond Interface," for works of art "for which

Dear MW97 Attendee:

Once again, the 1998 Best of the Web Contest will be held in conjunction
with Museums and the Web <http://www.archimuse.com/mw98/>, the only
international conference devoted to museums' use of the World Wide Web.

Museums and the Web 1998 will take place in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, April
22-25, 1998. Three full days of conference sessions (April 23-25, 1998)
explore issues and controversies, highlight museum applications, and take
an in-depth look at particular uses of the Web at exceptional museum sites.
Pre-conference events include behind-the-scenes visits to Toronto museums
and a series of detailed and hands-on workshops. The full program is
available at the conference web site: <http://www.archimuse.com/mw98/>.

In 1997, Museums and the Web attracted over 400 participants to Los
Angeles to hear reports and analysis by over 50 speakers from 11 countries.
This year, over 600 people are expected to participate in a more extensive
program featuring over 60 speakers from 16 countries. This conference draws
the museum professionals from around the world responsible for innovative
museum web-based projects and programs. The Best of the Web contest
recognises this effort and achievement.

Awards will be made by an international panel of judges, representing the
spectrum of those involved in web site development in museums including
previous winners, students, artists and initiators of innovative projects.
The criteria used for evaluation of the best museum Web sites will be based
on the draft Criteria for Evaluating Museum Multimedia (see
<http://www.archimuse.com/cidoc/cidoc.mmwg.eval.crit.html>) put together by
the ICOM/CIDOC Multimedia Working Group in Nuremburg in Sept. 1997.

We encourage you to register for the conference (see
<http://www.archimuse.com/mw98/> ) and to return the on-line nomination
form (<http://www.archimuse.com/mw98/frame_best.html>). The winners will be
announced at the opening ceremony in Toronto. Prizes include free
registration at Museums and the Web 99 for the institution judged Best

Rewarding innovative projects, whose conception illustrates the
possibilities for future designs on the Web is a the concern for all
involved in museum web projects. Please join me in ensuring that the Best
of the Web is a great venue for this.

If you have any queries do not hesitiate to contact me, Sarah Kenderdine
<sibk@xtra.co.nz>, or the Conference Co-Chairs David Bearman

Call for submissions: "Beyond Interface: net art and Art on the Net"

For many institutions, "art on the net" is putting images of works in
their collections on the Web. For many practitioners, digital media are a
tool that allow the recreation of familiar strategies of traditional art
practices or the Web is little more than another venue, a delivery
mechanism. "Beyond Interface" is an online exhibition of juried and curated
net art projects for which the Net is both a sufficient and necssary
condition of viewing/experiencing/participating.

"Beyond Interface" occurs in conjunction with Museums and the Web: An
International Conference, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, April 22-25, 1998

Subject: George Washington Papers & Spanish-American War Movies on American Memory Site

February 23, 1998

George Washington Papers 1741-1799
The Spanish-American War in Motion Pictures

Two new collections have recently been posted to the Library of Congress'
AMERICAN MEMORY site. One is the Manuscript Division's first of eight
installments of the complete George Washington papers in the form of
letterbooks. The material is accompanied by a time line, brief essays and a
bibliography. The second is mounted by the Motion Picture, Broadcasting,
and Recorded Sound Division and comprises 53 motion pictures from the
Spanish-American War and the Philippine Insurrection, produced between 1898
and 1901. This was the first U.S. war in which the motion picture camera
played a role and this web presentation will eventually contain 68 motion
pictures together with sound recordings.

The George Washington Papers at the Library of Congress

The Library of Congress National Digital Library Program and the Manuscript
Division announce the online publication of the George Washington Papers at
the Library of Congress on the American Memory Collections homepage:

This first release includes forty-one letterbooks (about 8,000) pages from
among 65,000 items to be published online within the next two years.
Included in the collection as a whole are correspondence, letterbooks,
commonplace books, diaries, journals, financial account books, military
records, reports, and notes, accumulated by Washington from 1741 through
1799. The Library of Congress Manuscript Division holds 85-90% of extant
Washington documents.

Washington's life as a Virginia county surveyor, as colonel of the militia
during the French and Indian Wars, his election as a delegate to the First
and Second Continental Congresses, and his command of the American Army
during the Revolution, and two presidential administrations are well
documented. Because of the breadth of Washington's activities, his papers
are a rich source for almost every aspect of colonial and early American
history, social and cultural, as well as political.

The Washington Papers was digitized from the Library of Congress microfilm
of the collection. Documents are presented online as GIF images and also as
200 dpi grayscale JPEG images. Transcriptions, provided for most documents,
are from copyright available published editions of the Washington Papers.
Reference aids include a selected bibliography, time line or chronology
with links to relevant documents, educational essays about the George
Washington Papers, and technical information on the digitization of the
collection and transcriptions.

The Spanish-American War in Motion Pictures

The Library of Congress National Digital Library Program and the Motion
Picture, Broadcasting and Recorded Sound Division announce the new online
presentation, The Spanish-American War in Motion Pictures, available
through the American Memory collections at the Library's home page
(http://lcweb.loc.gov), or directly at:


Fifty-three films made from 1898 to 1901 of the Spanish-American War and
the Philippine Insurrection are featured in this first release, timed to
coincide with the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the battleship U.S.S.
Maine. Fifteen more films will be added in April 1998, along with selected
sound recordings related to the war. The Spanish-American War is notable
for being the first U.S. war in which the motion picture camera played a
role. The films presented were made by the Edison Manufacturing Company
and the American Mutoscope & Biograph Company, and consist of actualities
filmed in the U.S., Cuba, and the Philippines, showing troops, ships,
notable figures, and parades, as well as reenactments of battles and other
war-time events. A special presentation, entitled "The Motion Picture
Camera Goes to War: the Spanish-American War and the Philippine
Insurrection," lists the films in chronological order and offers essays
that provide an historical context for the filming of the motion pictures.
Comprehensive catalog records are also available for each film title. The
motion pictures are available in MPEG and Quicktime formats for downloading
and viewing.

Below is a preliminary posting of a major national grant opportunity for
the cultural community interested in expanding research and demonstration
projects in networking our cultural resources.

Awards for individual investigators can reach $200,000 a year for 1 to 3
years. Multi-disciplinary group research projects can reach $1,200,000 per
year, for 1 to 5 years.

The National Endowment for the Humanities is a full partner with the
National Science Foundation and other sponsors of this second phase of the
"Digital Libraries Initiative." [For the projects funded in the first phase
of DLI, see <http://www.cise.nsf.gov/iris/DLHome.html>.] In its
announcement, the NEH invites the community to consider making proposals in
a range of areas. It suggests "projects that focus on issues important to
the effective creation, use, and preservation of digitized humanities

As part of this grant initiative, NEH "could support the creation of
testbeds comprising digitized humanities collections from libraries,
archives, museums, and historical organizations; the development and
testing of metadata for describing and preserving access to digital
humanities objects; and other activities that establish a clearer
understanding of the ways in which digitized collections can be used for
education, research, and public programming in the humanities."

Letters of intent for the first of two rounds will be due by APRIL 15, 1998.

Details of application workshops will be announced shortly.

Although opportunities for individual projects abound, I trust that this
community will spend considerable effort considering cross-sector,
multi-disciplinary collaborative projects.

Stay tuned for more information.

Below I reproduce first the announcement on the NEH webpage and then the
announcement from the National Science Foundation.

The Digital Library Initiative -- Phase II is conducted through the
National Science Foundation in cooperation with federal agency sponsors and
partners. The purpose of the initiative is to foster research and
demonstration projects that promise to increase the useability of globally
distributed, networked information resources.

The initiative addresses the entire life cycle of digital information: its
creation, accessibility, and preservation. Successful applicants will
conduct research designed to open new areas of activity in the digital
library field, demonstrate tools and methods for providing digitized
information to a broad range of users, and explore ways of preserving
access to digital information into the future.

*DLI2 at NSF*
As a sponsor of the digital library initiative, the National Endowment for
the Humanities, through its Division of Preservation and Access, offers
support for components of digital library projects that focus on issues
important to the effective creation, use, and preservation of digitized
humanities collections. NEH could support the creation of testbeds
comprising digitized humanities collections from libraries, archives,
museums, and historical organizations; the development and testing of
metadata for describing and preserving access to digital humanities
objects; and other activities that establish a clearer understanding of the
ways in which digitized collections can be used for education, research,
and public programming in the humanities.

FY 1999 Competition
- -------------------
Letters of Intent: February 15, 1999
Full Proposals: May 17, 1999

Innovative digital libraries research and applications will be jointly
supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Defense Advanced
Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the National Library of Medicine (NLM),
the Library of Congress (LoC), the National Aeronautics and Space
Administration (NASA), the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and

This announcement describes the goals and features of Digital Libraries
Initiative - Phase 2 (DLI-2), with particular attention on NSF interests
and requirements. More detailed information on the domain-specific
interests of the partnering agencies may be obtained from them. Within NSF,
DLI-2 is administered by the Division of Information and Intelligent
Systems (IIS) of the Directorate for Computer and Information Science and
Engineering (CISE). Supporting Directorates include the Directorate for
Education and Human Resources and the Directorate for Social, Behavioral
and Economic Sciences. Contacts for these and related activities at other
agencies are referenced at the end of this announcement.

The current effort extends the joint NSF/DARPA/NASA "Research on Digital
Libraries Initiative". Since announcement of that initiative, digital
libraries research and applications efforts have proliferated; new
communities of researchers, information providers and users have become
engaged; the definition of a digital library has evolved; technologies have
advanced; stores of digital content have increased dramatically; and new
research directions have emerged. These advances point to a future in which
vast amounts of digital information will be easily accessible to and usable
by large segments of the world's population.

To help achieve this, the Digital Libraries Initiative - Phase 2 plans

* Selectively build on and extend research and testbed activities in
promising digital libraries areas;
* Accelerate development, management and accessibility of digital content
and collections;
* Create new capabilities and opportunities for digital libraries to serve
existing and new user communities, including all levels of education;
* Encourage the study of interactions between humans and digital libraries
in various social and organizational contexts.

Electronic information is being created by many people and data gathering
instruments in many forms and formats, stored in many repositories around
the world, and becoming increasingly interconnected via electronic
networks. Digital libraries research is faced with the challenge of
applying increasing computational capacity and network bandwidth to manage
and bring coherence, usability, and accessibility to very large amounts of
distributed complex data and transform it into information and knowledge.

Since digital libraries are meant to provide intellectual access to stores
of information, research in this initiative is concerned with developing
concepts, technologies and tools to gain use of the fuller knowledge and
meaning inherent in digital collections. For example, for users this means
intelligent search, retrieval, organization and presentation tools and
interfaces; for content and collections providers this means new
information types, structures, document encoding and metadata for enhancing
context; for system builders this means designing hardware and software
systems capable of interpreting and implementing users' requests by
locating, federating and querying collections to provide the user with the
structured information sought.

The primary purposes of this initiative are to provide leadership in
research fundamental to the development of the next generation of digital
libraries, to advance the use and usability of globally distributed,
networked information resources, and to encourage existing and new
communities to focus on innovative applications areas.

Since digital libraries can serve as intellectual infrastructure, this
Initiative looks to stimulate partnering arrangements necessary to create
next-generation operational systems in such areas as education, engineering
and design, earth and space sciences, biosciences, geography, economics,
and the arts and humanities. It will address the digital libraries life
cycle from information creation, access and use, to archiving and

Research to gain a better understanding of the long term social, behavioral
and economic implications of and effects of new digital libraries
capabilities in such areas of human activity as research, education,
commerce, defense, health services and recreation is an important part of
this initiative.

Collaboration between academic, industry, non-profit and other
organizations is strongly encouraged to establish better linkages between
fundamental science and technologies development and use, through
partnerships among researchers, applications developers and users.



All awards for this announcement made by NSF will be as grants or
cooperative agreements to academic institutions and qualified non-profit
research organizations. Partnership arrangements with other groups are
encouraged, including subcontracts with the single proposing organization.

NSF expects to fund two general types of projects under this initiative:

1. Individual investigator research grants.
Awards will not exceed $200,000 per year, for 1 to 3 years.
2. Multi-disciplinary group research projects.
Awards will not exceed $1,200,000 per year, for 1 to 5 years.

The number of awards will depend on the quality of proposals received, the
availability of funds, and considerations for creating a balanced overall
program. Total support for the initiative from federal sponsors is
projected to be $40-$50 million over the 5 year Initiative. Awards will
not exceed $1,200,000 per year, except in exceptional circumstances. Ideas
for projects requiring support above this level should be discussed with
the NSF program officer before proposal preparation.


Please see the full announcement for additional information.



1. We are seeking CREATIVE proposals at ALL levels that will significantly
advance digital libraries research. I would like to encourage the
Information and Data Management Program community to play an active role in
the conception of innovative DLI proposals.

2. Although there is overlap between Knowledge and Distibuted Intelligence
(KDI), Program Annoucement NSF 98-55
(http://www.nsf.gov/cgi-bin/getpub?nsf9855), in particular its Knowledge
Networking component, and Digital Libraries, note that the Digital
Libraries Initiative (DLI) is strongly interested in collections and users.
Proposals for DLI should involve people making use of information (or make
it clear that users' needs are the driving motivation of the proposed

KDI is a fundamental research support program which does not stress
collections of information. All KDI proposals, however, must be
interdisciplinary. If the focus of a proposal is on information or user
communities which now exist, it may be better in DLI; if the focus is on
the creation of new information or communities, it is perhaps better in

The American Library Association's Washington Office has reported that two
copyright-related bills are scheduled for mark-up imminently. H.R. 2281,
the Administration's supported "WIPO Copyright Treaties Implementation
Act," often characterized as minimalist and failing to mention many of the
concerns of the cultural community, is scheduled to be considered by the
House Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Courts and Intellectual
Property this Thursday February 26. Subsequently, the "database" bill,
H.R. 2652, the "Collection of Information Antipiracy Act," will be
considered for mark-up on March 12.
