Subject: Goody Texts of Bagre myth now online

I am pleased to be able to present an online version of Jack Goody's Bagre
texts. They are transcripts of texts that he reorded in Ghana in 1969. They
have been made available here with the permission of Professor Goody.

In the late 1960s Goody was among those pioneering the anthropological use of
computer assisted textual analysis. The results were published in 1972 by OUP.
In a report to the SSRC (the forerunner of the UK ESRC) Goody and Duly
reported on this work and on a pioneering experiment on the preserving of
fieldnotes through digisation. Sadly I have to report that those files
cannot be

Goody, J.R. 1972. <i>The Myth of the Bagre</i>). Oxford: Oxford University
Goody, J.R. and C. Duly. 1981. <i>Studies in the use of Computers in Social
Anthropology (report to the SSRC).</i>.

<B>Note</B> the files have been modified as little as possible in order
that they be
readable in some fashion via the WWW as it exist in Mid 1999.

The files are presented in their entirety - guidance is given about their
sizes as some are quite big.

_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!
