On 31 January the Centre for English Studies, University of London, in
collaboration with the Office for Humanities Communication, held a one-day
conference here entitled "Electronic Publishing". The Web page for the
conference, at the URL


has subsequently become a record of the event and venue for publishing the
papers, two of which are now online, mine and John Unsworth's. Linked to my
paper is an "Overview of electronic publication", at the URL


about which comments would be welcome. Please note: however finished it may
look, the Overview is still only a rough draft of an attempt to classify the
variety of things we find online. I'm especially interested in examples
which violate the tentative categories I've defined, or which fill out
underpopulated ones. I am not attempting to be exhaustive within a category,
only to define and illustrate categories, nor am I attempting to identify
the "best" pages.

Thanks for any assistance.

The Faculty of Translation at the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona is
pleased to announce its first on-line international translation colloquium.
This first edition, devoted to the subject of intercultural transfer, is a
pilot project for future academic activities and participation is free of

There are two invited speakers, each of whom has prepared a set of position
papers on the topic: Doug Robinson (author of *THE TRANSLATOR'S TURN*,

CULTURES*) will act as Respondent in order to begin the discussion.

The on-line colloquium has a Web site where the position papers and the
response may be consulted. This site also includes bio-bibliographical
information on the speakers, as well as more information about the
colloquium, the Faculty of Translation, the Universitat Autonoma de
Barcelona, and links to resources for translators. The site for the
colloquium is located at:


Please note that <~iuts0> ends with a zero, not with the letter 'o'.

Since the colloquium's Web pages include graphic elements that could
prolong their loading time, you may want to disable the 'IMAGE' control on
your Web browser. (The position papers by Anthony Pym do include graphics
that are pertinent, however.)

Participation in the on-line colloquium will be carried out on the list
TRANSFER-L that has been created for that purpose. To subscribe to this
list, send the following message to <mailserv@cc.uab.es>:

Once you have received confirmation of your subscription, you may send
messages to <transfer-l@cc.uab.es>, and you will automatically receive all
new messages sent to the list. A record of all message received will be
maintained on a specific Web page at the colloquium site, on an
accumulative basis.

Participants may send their comments and questions to the invited speakers
by means of the TRANSFER-L list, and the speakers will respond by the same
means. Everyone subscribed to the list will receive these messages. If you

Subject: IOP

Humanists may be interested in the collection of journals
published by the Institute of Physics, <http://www.iop.org>. The mechanism
provided for searching across all the journals in the IOP collection (your
institution must have a subscription) seems an instance of the notion of
multiple virtual journals constructed by the reader, although these are
limited to the broad domain of physics.

Subject: virtual library?

Following up on a thread from a while ago about why scholarly material is
posted on the net: My reason is to keep it accessible after it's op (and to
escape the economics which made the paper version cost $55!)

In that regard I've posted my book _Wittgenstein and Kierkegaard_
(Routledge, 1989) now that the copyright has been reverted to me. I've
tried to mark the original pagination etc. so it's a true "reprint" of the
paper edition. It has a hyperlinked version of the original index, too.

Comments on the format, use of frames, accessibility for Lynx, etc. would be
welcome (you can see it at <http://www.ncwc.edu/~ccreegan/wk>)

But my main question is who keeps an index of book-length materials on the
net (a "virtual library", pardon the expression). I know about a couple
indices of papers in philosophy, but my sense is there are lots of books out
there too and not much being done to index them. I don't mean Project
Gutenberg or even OTA type collections, but indices of independent
publications. Any information?
