1. Revised Scope of the 9th Revision Directory
This directory contains descriptions of electronic
conferences (e-conferences) on topics of interest to
scholars.  E-conference is the umbrella term that
includes discussion lists, Internet interest groups,
e-journals, e-newsletters, Usenet newsgroups, forums,
etc.  In this 9th revision we have begun including
text based virtual reality systems known as MUDS,
MOO'S, Muck's, Mushes, etc. that are primarily for
scholarly or pedagogical activities.

The e-conferences in this Directory are all accessible
via Internet services including email, telnet, gopher,
or www.

We have used our own judgment in deciding what is of
scholarly interest, but always consider any advice or
argument about our decisions.  We have placed the
entries into categories by deciding the *dominant*
academic subject area of the electronic conference.

Where possible, the information in each record has
been checked for currency and accuracy by contacting
the moderators or other contact person.

We chose the term *moderator* as the umbrella term to
describe:  contact person, coordinator, listowner,
editor, moderator, etc.; in other words the Human in

Topic descriptions are taken in whole or part from the
descriptions provided by each moderator.
