Project Hermes, the initiative by the Computing and Communications Services Office in support of computing in the humanities, will offer two noncredit short courses this semester. The classes are intended primarily for faculty and professional staff members and graduate students in the text-based disciplines. A basic class in computer literacy for potential and recent computer users will be offered from 3 to 5 p.m. Feb. 15 and 17. "Computing in the Humanities," offering a more comprehensive look at how computers can aid humanistic scholarship, will meet from 3 to 5 p.m. March 22 and 24. The fee for each class is $15. The project's consulting office, now located in 204 Lincoln Hall, shares facilities with CCSO's Office of Computing and Communications in the Social Sciences. Its new hours are 9 a.m. to noon and 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. most weekdays; but it is advisable to call 244-8517 for an appointment. The project continues to make available appropriate equipment (both IBM-compatible and Apple Macintosh), documentation, short courses, individual tutoring and consulting to those in the humanities. It also attempts to help new users begin to identify, locate and use all the computing equipment and services that may contribute to scholarly effectiveness in their disciplines, including such areas as word processing, e-mail, text scanning, electronic texts, hypertext, text retrieval, and networking with topical forums and on-line information services. The project's staff this semester includes Rory Clark (French) and Mark Lewis (German). Questions and comments may be directed to Ron Szoke, 333-8630, or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
