The mission of the Brown University Women Writers Project is to create, develop, and make accessible a state-of-the-art electronic textbase of women's writing in English before 1830. The purpose of this demonstration of the premiere release of our textbase is twofold:
Released at the end of 1998, INSO's Dynaweb version 4.1 provides many new features especially attractive to humanists. To make the potential if these features apparent to humanists in a way that is not readily accessible in the Dynaweb documentation, this demonstration and poster session will show not only the working features in action, but will also provide documentation and code for other humanist Dynaweb users on how to achieve such functionality. This new functionality includes things which have been possible before in INSO's stand-alone SGML browser (Dynatext) and in other web systems such as OpenText/Pat, but which have heretofore not been possible in Dynaweb, such as keyword-in-context (concordance) search results.
This demonstration and poster session will require a computer with an Internet connection and with at least Netscape 4.x or Internet Explorer 4.x installed. The demonstration will also include both handouts and posters. Until August 1999, access to our textbase is free; our URL is <http://www.wwp.brown.edu/>.
