_ M-Bed(sm): A Registry of Embedded Multimedia Electronic Journals_

I am pleased to announcement the formal establishment of
a new registry of electronic journals that incorporate or integrate
embedded multimedia within their e-articles. The registry is

_M-Bed(sm): A Registry of Embedded Multimedia Electronic Journals_

and is accessible from


Currently the registry is only an alphabetical listing of identified
e-journal titles. As time permits, I will be preparing specialized indexes
by type of multimedia and plug-in as well. The registry
also contains a General Bibliography of key works on the topic of multimedia
in e-journals.

I have prepared a 2,000 word newsletter article on "Embedded
Multimedia in Electronic Journals" that is scheduled to be published within
the newsletter of the Special Interest Group on Visualization, Images, and
Sound (VIS) of the American Society for
Information Science (ASIS) in the near future. The address for the ASIS SIG
VIS is


I would greatly appreciate learning of additional multimedia e-journals
as well as receiving citations/sitations to any high-relevant literature not
currently listed for expanded article I will be preparing this summer for a
Fall deadline.

I wish to express my gratitude to all who contributed nominations for
this listing as well as relevant citations from my previous queries.

Thanks again to all!

Subject: New Release of Web Dictionary of Buddhism


I am happy to announce to you the availability of a newly updated version of
the web Dictionary of East Asian Buddhist Terms (DEABT).

This version replaces that which was issued in January of this year, having
increased in coverage from 4200 entries to 5200. This is the largest single
increase so far between updates--also in the shortest amount of time. The
enhanced rapidity and size of the update is due to two main factors: (1) The
fact that the DEABT is finally turning into the cooperative project that we
had envisioned it to be, and (2) the increased speed with which input is
possible, primarily due to the availability of the Composite Index of East
Asian Buddhist Dictionaries (available at

This version is, like the prior one, available in Shift-JIS and Unicode
formats. Information on these formats, and how to set up the proper font
support, is provided on the dictionary main entry page. It may also be
downloaded for local installation and usage.

The URL for the DEABT is:
