index.  The project also includes updating and expanding existing
chapters as required to include new information.  New chapters will
also be written to address newer media in more depth and the new and
emerging technologies not covered in the first edition, such as
digital imaging.

A draft manuscript should be submitted to the CCA-PC  in Microsoft
Word 97 or Wordperfect 8 format for review, followed by a final
manuscript  in Microsoft Word 97 or Wordperfect 8 format with any
corrections requested by the CCA-PC.  Copy editing and French
