Subject: New Site: Humanities Computing at New York University

The Humanities Computing Group at New York University, the newest
subject-specific group of NYU's Academic Computing Facility, is pleased to
announce that it has developed its Web site. The collection of pages is
intended to be a resource for the humanities computing community; it
includes information about the HCG's computing services, software
resources, and staff as well as links to the online newsletter and to
announcements of our popular on-campus seminars and other events.

A large section of the site serves as an annotated, selective meta-list of
links to other humanities computing sites, arranged by subject and
cross-referenced to lists of relevant journals, mailing lists, newsgroups,


Any comments or questions are welcome and should be addressed to Lorna
Hughes, Assistant Director of the Humanities Computing Group

>The Internet Applications Laboratory at the University of Evansville would
>like to announce the beta release of a new search engine dedicated to
>philosophy on the Internet. Designed by the makers of Argos, an ancient
>and medieval search engine, and Hippias, another philosophy search engine,
>Noesis employees new search routines that allow users to approach data
>from a variety of perspectives. For a better understanding of how to use
>the search engine, please see the "Help" file available at the site.
>In addition to a search engine, Noesis includes a browsable index, broken
>down into a separate author index and a collections index. We are planning
>on adding a topical index over time that will allow users to browse and
>search files according to their pertinence to the various areas of study
>recognized by professional philosophers.
>Thank you.
