We've actually had this catalogued in Humbul since March 2003
(http://www.humbul.ac.uk/output/full2.php?id=6010). This is no criticism
of anyone, except perhaps Humbul, but we'd welcome suggestions of the best
ways to alert humanities people to the stuff that gets catalogued in
Humbul each week. We maintain RSS newsfeeds, for example, and an
email-based alerting services (for which you need to register) but are
there other things we should be considering? We could, for example, think
about posting a brief list of recently catalogued resources to humanist
once a week?
