Computers & Writing Bibliography

I'm writing this from the beautiful city of Ghent, Belgium, where I'm fortunate to attend an interesting conference on Language Policy & Language Variation. Special greetings to colleagues in Ghent (and also thanks to Kate Coffield for passing on information on the following resource, which I have mildly reformatted).




Colleagues --

With this message, I am proud to announce an extensive scholarly bibliography on computers and writing now available for your use at <>. This biblography, sponsored by the journal _Computers and Composition_ (a journal for teachers who use computers to teach writing and communication) contains more than two thousand items including:

        Citations for every one of the over 400 articles, book reviews, and software reviews published in the past 17 years of _Computers and Composition's_ history (1983-2000)

        Citations for every bibliographic item within each article--approximately ~1500 citations in all.

        Citations for every bibliographic item referenced within the 10 books in the Computers and Composition book series.

THERE IS NO CHARGE for use of this online bibliography--we have provided it to colleagues in gratitude for their ongoing support of _Computers and Composition_.

Please use it often--we hope it proves valuable to you and to our scholarly projects!

Oh, and if you find items missing from our bibliography don't hesitate to send a full bibliographic citation to us, and we will add it to our list.
