Hi John: Victor Golla forwarded your message to the FUNKNET group that
mentioned the CD ROM workshop we are organizing here at U of Iowa next
Summer.  Here are some details you might like to forward-- anyone
interested in more can contact me.

Dates: June 17th-July 13th 1966

Four week intensive workshop to train linguists (and accompanying native
speakers,teachers,scholars) in the basics of multi-media production and
archiving techniques.  Hands on assistance with the design and
development of CD ROM Projects.  The specific goal is to bridge the gap
between the needs of American Indian communities anxious to preserve and
revitalize their languages and the scholarly products of linguists. On a
CD ROM you can combine voice sounds, written text, video, photo, visual
arts and music in responsible, accurate presentations of linguistic
knowledge that are also exciting and user friendly. If you have a project
in mind, plan to join us!

Registration Fees $1500 includes four weeks instruction and project
consultation, access to all state-of-the-art audio-visual and computer
facilitites, and a variety of social events.

Accomodation: approx $620 single,$420 double (not including food).

For further details and registration forms contact: Brenda Farnell,
