    Depending on what happens over the next few months with respect to
    federal budgets, The NSF's (National Science Foundation) Computer
    Science Programs are considering an extension of the Digital
    Libraries Initiative for three year projects for between $100,000 to
    $200,000 per year that may combine advances in the development of
    digital libraries with new scholarly resources, tools, and methods
    in order to advance research or education in disciplinary areas not
    normally supported in the Computer Sciences.  These disciplinary
    areas include the social and behavioral sciences, science and
    technology studies areas, the humanities and the arts.

    Projects combining computer science research on digital libraries
    with disciplinary areas will be jointly considered by the computer
    science programs and appropriate NSF programs in social, behavioral
    and economic sciences, or by appropriate programs in the National
    Endowment for the Humanities, the National Archives's grant program,
    the National Historical Publications and Records Commission or the
    National Endowment for the Arts.

    Researchers are encouraged to begin planning for proposals that
    would address this solicitation.  Projects will begin in fiscal year
    1996.  Applicants will have to submit a letter of intent within
    about a month after the solicitation is approved. DO NOT SUBMIT A
    Until that solicitation is released,  potential applicants should
    examine the original "Research on Digital Libraries" (NSF 93-141)
    announcement for a list of technical areas which may be considered in
    the computer science component of the proposal.
