    The Association for Computers and the Humanities is happy to announce the
    launch of a new service, the ACH Jobs Page:


    Its goal is to support and advise job-seekers in the field of humanities
    computing, and to cultivate a thriving job market and successful contact
    between job-seekers and employers.

    The Jobs Page currently offers two services:

    --a jobs database, so that job-seekers can easily find what is currently

    --a mentoring service, to offer advice to new job-seekers and those
    entering the field of humanities computing.

    If you are an employer with jobs to post, please visit the ACH Jobs page to
    enter them in the database. Please don't hesitate to contact the jobs
    editors with questions about this process, or with suggestions for
    improving it. The editors will be keeping an eye out for job postings and
    keeping the database up to date by hand for the first few months, but we
    would like to encourage employers to use the jobs database as one of their
    primary means of advertisement, and to enter the jobs themselves in the
    first instance.

    If you are looking for a job, or interested in knowing more about the
    current job market, please browse the database and let us know what you
    think. At present it is quite basic, but we will be adding functionality
    over the next few months and will be grateful for feedback.

    If you're interested in being a mentor, please contact Wendell Piez

    Best wishes, Julia Flanders

    NINCH ANNOUNCEMENT News on Networking Cultural Heritage Resources from across the Community October 25, 2001

    Museum Domain Management Association (MuseDoma) Signs Sponsorship Agreement to Create .museum Domain Name http://musedoma.org/musedoma.html http://www.icann.org/tlds/

    >Date: Thu, 18 Oct 2001 14:54:04 +0200 >>From: Cary Karp <ck@nrm.se> >>Comments: To: Museum TLD News and Announcements <MUSEDOMA-NEWS@MUSEUM.ORG>

    On October 17th, the Museum Domain Management Association (MuseDoma) signed a Sponsorship Agreement with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) for the creation of the top-level Internet domain, .museum.

    The full text of this agreement is available at: http://www.icann.org/tlds/

    This page provides a useful description of ICANN's present action and the material specific to .museum is located toward the bottom of the page.

    The current status of MuseDoma's initiation of .museum operation is available at: http://musedoma.org/

    Particular attention is called to the material about the preliminary requests for the reservation of subdomain names. These requests have been accepted since June 30th and this phase of the start-up action will terminate on October 31st (seen globally, at noon UTC on November 1st).

    The requests thus far submitted, together with those that are received during the rest of October, will then be processed to serve as the basis for the first public demonstration of the new domain. If you would like to participate in this, please visit the MuseDoma site without delay.

    The .museum domain will be operated on a provisional basis for approximately the next three months before the formal registration of subdomain names will be initiated. The inclusion of further names in the demonstration phase will be resumed on November 21st, so there will be ample time for anyone to apply for participation subsequent to the conclusion of the first service at the end of this month.

    Each step of the start-up phase will be described in detail on the MUSEDOMA-DISCUSS e-mail discussion list. This also serves as a forum for the open discussion of all activity relating to .museum. Futher information about this list, as well as its archives, may be found under the heading "Open Forum" on the MuseDoma Web site.
