New list

From: Peter Stott <pstott>
Date: Sunday, July 2, 1995
At its April 29th meeting, the Board of Trustees of US/ICOMOS (the
US  National Committee of the International Council on Monuments and
Sites) approved the establishment of a new electronic mailing list,
"usicomos," for all members of US/ICOMOS and friends of
international heritage conservation. The list can be used to alert
members to important legislative initiatives, to ICOMOS affairs, and
for discussion of more general issues related to the mission of the
organization. We anticipate that the list will also be used by the
specialized committees to announce new program initiatives, events,
and publications. To subscribe to the list, send an electronic mail
message to majordomo [at] world__std__com. In the body of the message
include the single line, 'subscribe usicomos' (without the quotes).

The following text was distributed to the list today:

To readers of 'usicomos'

The publication of the reports from the second General Assembly of
World Heritage Cities in Norway can fairly be said to have 'launched'
'usicomos', the electronic mailing list of the US National Committee
of the International Council on Monuments and Sites (US/ICOMOS).

There should be a final report submitted later today covering the
closing activities on Friday, followed by a report on the meeting of
the Bureau of the World Heritage Committee, which begins tomorrow,
Monday, at Unesco headquarters.

Although at the moment, these two meetings may be occupying most of
the space on this list, I hope that readers will feel free to use
the list for questions on these and other topics related to
international preservation and the activities of US/ICOMOS.

A couple of additional notes:

The Unesco gopher has changed its address, in case you have been
trying to access the files of the World heritage Centre. The new
addresses includes the word 'gopher' in the  and accordingly the World Heritage
Centre address has also  changed: The
gopher was recently upgraded, and it now includes the 1995
Operational Guidelines, the last five years of World Heritage
Committee reports, and (shortly, we hope) the June issue of the
World Heritage Newsletter.  The World Heritage Centre now also has a
general information address, wh-info [at] unesco__org. (If you get a "host
not found" message, keep trying!)

In conjunction with the Second General Assembly of World Heritage
Cities in Bergen, meeting on the theme of 'Communication', the
Organization's Secretariat has also opened a WWW page:

These changes and others are, of course, reflected by the most
recent update to the Internet Resource Guide to Heritage
Conservation, Historic Preservation, and Archaeology--at
