    This is kindly to request comments, criticisms, corrections and additions
    to a highly selective bibliography of work on diagramming, which I have put
    online at <http://ilex.cc.kcl.ac.uk/wlm/diagram/>. The intention behind
    this and other bibliographies to come is to suggest directions of research
    of which, I will shortly be arguing, we need to be aware. Since I am hardly
    an expert in the topic, I ask those who are expert to treat this as an
    invitation to teach. Your eager student awaits his instruction!

    The effectiveness of the bibliography will be lost, I think, if many more
    items are added. What I would hope for are items that are better or more
    comprehensive than those I list. I would also be enormously grateful to be
    pointed toward related topics that I have somehow missed.

    Many thanks.

    Does anyone know whether it is possible to scan the text of a microcard
    with a conventional desktop scanner? I have attempted this with a
    "cheap" desktop scanner but the results were unacceptable -- it appears
    that I would need to scan the original microcard at a much higher DPI
    than my current scanner supports. If you've experimented successfully
    with this, what DPI would you recommend for a legible scan?

    Thanks for any suggestions,
