1.  SMT and MTO
MTO subscribers may have noticed that the numbering for this issue is 
1.1.  After eleven issues in volume "0"--an indicator of MTO's initial,
trial stage--future issues will be numbered from volume 1, as an
indicator of SMT's official imprimatur.  At the November 1994 annual
SMT meeting in Tallahassee, Florida, the Executive Board voted to
adopt, with some revisions, a proposal on SMT networking drafted last 
year by an ad hoc Networking Committee (Ann McNamee, Chair) appointed
by President Patrick McCreless after the 1993 meeting.  The SMT
Publications Committee (Rick Cohn, Chair) discussed the proposal in
Talahassee and submitted it with some modifications to the Executive
Board, which approved it.  In addition to extending official recognition 
to MTO and to the other SMT networking components (the Email Conference 
and Online Bibliograhic Database), the adopted proposal calls for the 
establishment of several administrative and managerial positions to 
oversee and develop SMT networking.  A new Networking Committee is 
currently being appointed.  The names and roles of its members will be 
published in an Editor's Communication in MTO 2.1 (March).  The ad hoc 
Networking Committee members (Bo Alphonce, Dan Harrison, Ann McNamee, 
John Roeder) are delighted with the Executive Board's decision and 
appreciate the Publication Committee's support.  I would like personally 
to thank the ad hoc Committee for its efforts.  I look forward to working 
with the members of the new Networking Committee in further developing 
the content and scope of our online resources.
2.  mto-talk:  A New List!
Beginning in early February a new, trial mailing list, called mto-talk, 
will be established.  Its purpose will be to carry dialog among 
subscribers and authors about items published in MTO.  After a few 
months of what will hopefully be an active existence, mto-talk will 
be evaluated by the new SMT Networking Committee.  The manager of 
mto-talk will be Claire Boge, who can be reached at the following 
address:  talk-editor@boethius.music.ucsb.edu.  She will take over
as Manager soon after the new list is launched in early February.
mto-talk will be dedicated to relatively short comments, defined
loosely as 10-50 lines (roughly) of electronic text.  Extensive, 
in-depth commentaries on MTO essays (50+ lines) should be prepared
according to the MTO author guidelines and submitted to the Editor
for publication in MTO.  The MTO Guide explains how to request a copy 
of the author guidelines.
In order to save time and effort, rather than issuing a call for 
current MTO subscribers to submit requests to join the list, I will
simply add all subscribers to the list and send out a welcome
message to everyone.  After receiving the welcome message, those 
who wish to remove themselves from mto-talk may do so by sending 
a message to listproc@husc.harvard.edu with the line 
"unsubscribe mto-talk" (without the quotation marks) as the
sole text.
3. New MTO Reviews Editor
MTO welcomes Brian Alegant (McGill University) as the new 
Reviews Editor.  He replaces Claire Boge who, as the first
Reviews Editor, held down that post while at the same time
serving as Editor of the SMT Newsletter.  The MTO Co-
editorial Board would like to thank Claire for her dedica-
tion and creative input during the early stages of the 
journal's development.  We welcome her in her new role as
mto-talk Manager.
As the new Reviews Editor, Alegant will consult with the 
staff of *Music Theory Spectrum*, SMT's print journal, in 
order to coordinate assignments.  In its reviews MTO will 
aim at covering those publications that *Spectrum* cannot 
cover, in addition to including reviews that our print 
journal and others have not often covered, for example 
conferences, textbooks, software, and periodical articles.  
Subscribers interested in writing a review, as well as those 
with suggestions for reviews should contact the Reviews 
Editor by email (alegant@music.mcgill.ca).
4.  New Indices Available
As announced a few weeks ago, two new files are available in the
MTO archive, one containing a directory of dissertation listings
published so far in MTO (0.1 - 0.11), the other containing a
directory of essays, commentaries, and reviews published so far.
The directories are organized alphabetically by authors' names.
The files will be updated with each new issue of MTO.
Originally, the files were named diss-index.txt (for the
dissertation directory) and all-toc.txt (for the directory
of essays, commentaries, and reviews).  I recently changed
the names of the files to diss.index and toc.index, respectively.
Those names are in keeping with the one other index file in
the MTO archive, mto.index, which is a listing of *all* files
contained in the archive.
8. Copyright Statement
   1.  Retrieving MTO Items (with mto-serv and FTP)
   2.  Subscribing to MTO
   3.  Retrieving MTO Documentation
   4.  Queries and Communications
Items are retrieved by sending an email message to the MTO FileServer,
mto-serv, or through anonymous FTP (see below).  To use the FileServer,
send a message to one of the following two addresses:
	mto-serv@husc.harvard.edu	(Internet)
	mto-serv@husc.bitnet		(Bitnet)
Leave the "Subject:" line blank and as the body of the message include
the following lines (no personal letterheads or signatures!):
path YourEmailAddress	  (Bitnet addresses *must* include .BITNET)
send Item		  (specify item, as listed below)
send Item		  (additional "send" lines, if desired)
After the word "path," enter your full email address (Bitnet users
must include .BITNET).  Be *sure* to include the word "path" 
followed by a valid email address.  Without the "path" line, mto-serv 
will not know where to deliver requested items.  To retrieve items
from the *current* issue of MTO, after the word "send," replace "Item" 
with the one of the following options:
articles	(= main article[s])
gifs		(= musical examples)
reviews		(= review[s])
commentaries	(= commentaries on past MTO articles)
dissertations	(= dissertation listings)
announcements	(= announcements)
jobs		(= job listings)
package		(= all the above items, in a single package)
toc		(= current table of contents)
path john_doe@husc.harvard.edu
send package
Subscribers with restricted emailbox space should be careful when
using the "package" option.  A full issue of MTO, text and musical
examples, can be quite large and may "crash" an emailbox of limited
size.  It may be safer to request a few files at a time, and to remove
them from the emailbox before requesting more files.
For instructions on retrieving items from back issues, or complete 
back issues of MTO, consult the document "mto-guide.txt" (see below,
on retrieving MTO documentation).
MTO items may also be retrieved through anonymous FTP.  The site is: 
fas.harvard.edu).  Use "anonymous" as loginID and your email address 
as password.  Change to the directory pub/smt/mto (with the command: 
cd pub/smt/mto).  The file mto.current contains all items constituting 
the current issue; toc.current is the most recent table of contents.  
The individual items of the current issue have filenames that begin 
as follows:  mto.yy.v.i, where "yy" is the last two digits of the 
current year; "v" is the current volume number; and "i" is the current 
issue number (example: mto.94.0.6).  Refer to the MTO Guide for further 
To subscribe to MTO, send an email message to one of the following
"listproc" addresses:
	listproc@husc.harvard.edu	(Internet)
	listproc@husc.bitnet		(Bitnet)
Leave the "Subject:" line blank and as the text of the message include 
the following single line (no personal letterheads or signatures!): 
subscribe mto-list YourFirstName YourLastName
You will receive a message confirming your subscription.  Once the 
subscription is confirmed, to receive the MTO Guide send a message to 
one of the "listproc" addresses shown above, and as the body of the
message include the single line:  information mto-list
To cancel a subscription, send the following single line to one of the 
"listproc" addresses (not to mto-serv!):  unsubscribe mto-list
[NOTE:  Do not send email to the "listproc" addresses for anything
other than initiating and terminating subscriptions to MTO.  Further,
do not send email to mto-list@husc.  mto-list is solely for broadcasting
MTO to its subscribers, *not* for communication among subscribers, nor 
for retrieving MTO items (done with mto-serv), nor for communication
with the Editor (address above).  Please do not send mail to 
mto-list@husc, *nor* use a "reply" command on email distributed through 
Several MTO explanatory documents are available through mto-serv:
mto-guide.txt (the MTO Guide, also retrievable from "listproc")
   Instructions for
	a. subscribing to MTO
	b. retrieving MTO items (articles, reviews,
	   commentaries, musical examples, and figures)
	c. posting items in MTO (announcements, jobs, dissertations)
	d. searching the MTO database
   Guidelines for authors
   MTO editorial policy
   List of available software (IBM and Mac) for MTO
   subscribers, and instructions for retrieving the
   List of all files in the MTO archive (updated regularly)
To retrieve any of these documents, send an email message to one of 
the "mto-serv" addresses (not to the "listproc" addresses!), and use 
the format shown above ("path" line with full email address, and one 
or more "send" lines specifying the desired document[s]).  For example, 
to retrieve the document called "software.txt," address a message to 
mto-serv and as the body of the message include only the following two 
lines (no personal letterheads or signatures!):
path john_doe@husc.harvard.edu    (Bitnet addresses must include .BITNET)
send software.txt
send authors.txt		  (additional "send" lines for more items)
The words "path" (followed by an email address) and "send" (followed
by the desired item) *must* appear.
Send all queries and communications (announcements, letters to
the Editor, etc.) to one of the following addresses:
	mto-editor@husc.harvard.edu	(Internet)
