Speaking of on-line dissertations, I would like to remind the readers of=20
he Humanists list that two, converging, distributed projects are=20
proceeding even as I write these lines. The first one is Virginia Tech's=20
effort. It is still largely based on pdf but does not seem to be married=20
to that format forever. The other one is based in Quebec for the moment=20
and involves the five universities that produce about 95% of all theses=20
in the Province. Collaboration with French, Brazilian, Chilean and Korean=
teams are either negotiated or explored. This project is firmly based on=20
SGML as a storage-production format, whil pdf will be available along=20
with other formats for retrieval purposes.

If you know of institutional thesis projects that work in isolation,=20
please let me know as I firmly believe in the virtues of distributed=20
coordination. In other words, let us talk.

Best to all,
