                    NESTOR AS A COMPUTER DATABASE

The Nestor bibliography (more than 30,000 entries) is now becoming
progressively available on diskette, as structured ASCII files (ready to
import to database programs), for both IBM/PC and Apple computers. This
conversion is sponsored by INSTAP.  Several recent volumes are at this
moment (Jan. '94) ready for distribution, and the remainder--back to the
first issue of 1957--will become available in the course of the next 18
months.  Diskettes, each containing three or more volumes (years) of
bibliography, will be announced in the monthly Nestor as they are ready.
In the future the Nestor ASCII files will also become available on the
Internet via FTP (watch for announcements on relevant BBS's).

Distribution:  Diskettes are distributed at the cost of materials and mailing.
For North American addresses, that cost now is $ 3.75/diskette; for
overseas addresses the cost is $ 6.00/diskette.  Orders must specify Apple
or IBM/PC version, and they should be accompanied by a check (in US $),
payable to INDIANA UNIVERSITY FOUNDATION.  They should be
sent to the Nestor address:

                NESTOR
                Program in Classical Archaeology
                Indiana University
                Bloomington, Indiana 47405
                U.S.A.

We anticipate that 6 diskettes (the last 20 years of Nestor) will be ready
by the end of the academic year.  You may prepay for all, or any number of
them, and we will mail them to you as they become ready.

Overseas orders, please note:  we are working on various possibilities to
make payments in US $ easier and less expensive, and we hope to have a
solution to announce within a month or so (see also Nestor 20:9 [Dec.
1993] and 21:1 [Jan. 1994]).
