to advertise ANSAXNET again on HUMANIST. ANSAXNET is a Special Interest
Group using BITNET and associated university and research networks

history of England before 1100 C.E. Persons interested in the later
English Middle Ages and those interested in the early Medieval period
throughout Europe are also encouraged to join the list. Currently, we
have over 100 members in nine nations.

Members receive a directory of all our members in order to facilitate
dialogues among small groups of member; access to ANSAX-L, a LISTSERV
list which provides each member with the ability to communicate
simultaneously with all other members of ANSAXNET; and a monthly
electronic report to which members are encouraged to contribute
announcements and information. This report often provides our members
with new information about the use of computers in some aspect of their
disciplines, as well as news of more conventional developments in the

We also have projects underway to encode databases which members may use
in their own work, we provide access to the Dictionary of Old English at
Toronto, the Fontes Anglo-Saxonici project at Manchester, SASLC ("Sources

Medieval Studies published by the Pontifical Institute at Toronto.
