in response to the message from Karin Warren about an index of articles
in past Technical Communication journal issues. For those of you who
aren't STC members (or who just can't find the January 1993 INTERCOM),
here's what the STC's Bulletin Board System offers in the way of bibliographic
information about its publications:

* abstracts from Technical Communication articles (1978-present)
* abstracts from STC Conference Proceedings (1985-present)
* abstracts from dissertations on technical communication (no dates given)

The index of abstracts from the Conference Proceedings is a relatively
new service that the STC offers (yea!).

For details on how to connect to and use the STC BBS, contact the STC office
directly at (703) 522-4114 or by (regular) mail at this address:

Society for Technical Communication
901 N. Stuart Street, Suite 904
Arlington, VA 22203-1854
FAX: (703) 522-2075
BBS: (703) 522-3299

Please note that some of the services available on the BBS are not available
to new users during their first session. Certain restrictions apply. Not
available in all stores. Your mileage may vary. You get the picture.

Other details:
You need a PC and a modem (300 to 9600 baud)
No parity, 8 data bits, and one stop bit (see Mark's note above)
After connecting, you can basically follow the screen instructions.
If you're an STC member, use your membership number as your password. If not,
use a four- to ten-digit number as your password.

Happy Researching!
