Subject: Hebrew Scriptures Discussion Group

Has a discussion group along the lines of IOUDAIOS formed for those
working with the Hebrew Scriptures and Cognate Literatures? If not, is
there any interest?

Subject: New LISTSERV group: INDOLOGY

I am pleased to announce the establishment of a new network discussion
group, using the LISTSERV software.

The group is called INDOLOGY and is for the exchange of views and
information relating to this field. The group is aimed at people with
an interest in Sanskrit, Prakrit, Pali, Apabhramsa and the other
languages of classical and later India; historians of the art,
literature music and culture of India; the exchange of information
relating to machine-readable texts in Indic languages, and so on.
Nothing that could come under the broad rubric of "Indology" is
excluded. Discussion relating to the use of computers to do Indology
is to be expected too, naturally.

If you would like to join, the procedure is as for any LISTSERV
system. Send an email message to the Janet network address
LISTSERV@UK.AC.LIVERPOOL (if you are sending from outside Janet, you
will probably need to reverse the string after the "@" thus:

The message you send should consist of the line


That's it! You will then receive some general information about how to
work the group. Your contributions to the discussion should be
directed not to LISTSERV@UK.AC.LIVERPOOL, but to
INDOLOGY@UK.AC.LIVERPOOL, otherwise things will get in a muddle.

Best wishes,

Subject: Update, Academic Electronic Groups

Attached is the updated list of academic discussion groups
on the electronic networks, based on responses received in
the past month. Thank you for your recommendations. In some
instances, I did not see how the materials submitted could
be included (e.g. the HOTLINES service of COMPUSERV) or was
not sure it was really relevant. If further suggestions are
received, I will update as appropriate. Information on which
lists are moderated and which not might be useful.
