Subject: List Search Results: Lists on the Gulf War
Since my original posting asking on lists that deal with the Gulf Crisis, I
received many answers and the crisis turned into a war. Since many asked that
I inform them of the results, and it might be of interest to others, I hereby
summarize the answers sent to me. Thanks to all the respondants.

1. Apparently, for all those who have UseNet access, the best place to go is
Alt.Desert-Shield , and there are some other alternatives there.

2. For the less fortunate, such I myself, that do not have such access (which
does not seem to be available from a VM/Bitnet account) there are some lists
that are dealing mainly with the war these days. Among them:

PoliticsUCF1VM
Newse-LINDYCMS
Activ-LUMCVMB
HistoryFINHUTC

3. Please take into account that the traffic on some of these is extremely
heavy these days.

Subject: New discussion group on Multilingualism

MULTI-L is a newly established electronic discussion group
operated for the Scientific Commission on Language and Education
in Multilingual Settings of the International Association of
Applied Linguistics (AILA). It provides for the exchange of
information, news, and opinions about all aspects of minority
language education. If you want to subscribe to MULTI-L, there
are three ways to do so:
1. If your computer operates interactively (VM/CMS), send the
following instruction:
TELL LISTSERV AT BARILVM SUBSCRIBE MULTI-L Your full name
On VAX/VMS systems, use SEND or SEND/MESSAGE instead of TELL.
2. If your computer cannot work interactively, use your normal
electronic mail system. When asked for the address, reply
LISTSERVBARILVM
and when asked for the text, write
SUBSCRIBE MULTI-L Your full name.
3. Write an e-mail letter to Bernard Spolsky
<F24030BARILVM.BITNET> saying you want to join. Make sure your
full name and correct E-mail address appear in the letter.
