These are referred to in information that I have posted, or are related to my research interests, or ...... Each is labeled with a bookmark that consists of the author's name (concatenated last names if two authors, first author's last name plus "etal" if three or more authors) concatenated with the date of publication, e.g., Arnow1987, Asaydewey1979). Some bookmarks are duplicated, but the references concerned will be close together. I hope it is not too much of a problem. (Feb. 20, 1999: I am starting to add keywords, but these may be partly of my choosing.-Mary Barkworth).
