              <i>Exemplaria</i> is pleased to announce the launch on its World
    Wide Web site of two webprints: "A Most Uncourtly Lady: The Testimony of
    the <i>Belle dame sans mercy</i>," by Gretchen V. Angelo (Cal State - LA),

              The essays will remain on-line through the fall of 2003. The page
    also contains e-mail links to the authors, and an e-mail link to
    <i>Exemplaria</i> editors is available on our mainpage. Readers should feel
    free to communicate with the authors about their essays; equally, they
    should feel free to call to the attention of the editors of
    <i>Exemplaria</i> any problems that they may have with the site itself.
              N.B. The webprints are .pdf files, which can be opened and read
    with the free Adobe Acrobat Reader, since this format enables
    platform-independent download and printout of a given essay. We welcome
    your comments on this practice, especially if you encounter any
    difficulties with the files.
              In launching this essay on the World Wide Web, <i>Exemplaria</i>
    subscribes to the "Principles for Emerging Systems of Scholarly
    Publishing" published on the World Wide Web by the Association of Research
    Libraries at URL

    The New York Public Library has launched the Picture Collection Online
    (PCO). PCO contains digitized historical public domain images of such
    subjects as New York City, Costumes, and American History. A total of
    30,000 images, all selected from the Reference File of The New York Public
    Library's Picture Collection, will be available on PCO by late 2003. The
    site, which is funded in part by a National Leadership Grant from The
    Institute of Museum and Library Services, is accessible through a link from
    the Picture Collection homepage or directly at http://digital.nypl.org/mmpco.
