         Subject: searching of Humanist improved

Yesterday I announced that Humanist's searching service, Excite, had
been restored. John Unsworth then pointed out that Excite was not
updating its indexes and, to avoid troublesome repair of an old tool,
wrote a quick but elegant application of Google for the job. I was so
delighted with it that I immediately installed it. Go to
www.princeton.edu/humanist/ or to
www.kcl.ac.uk/humanities/cch/humanist/, click on the Search link at
the top or bottom of the page and try it out. Much better!

My heartfelt thanks to John for being observant and for contributing
his elegantly simple fix.
