         Subject: Digital Texts 2.0 Preview Release

Dear colleagues,

I'm very please to announce the immediate availability of a preview
release of Digital Texts 2.0, a Facebook application designed to fuse
some of the strengths of social networking practises with academic
sensibilities in textual scholarship. If you're a researcher, student,
teacher, author, librarian, or avid reader, Digital Texts 2.0 can help
you to organize and enrich your texts, and share them with others.

Some Key Features:
* Add and browse Texts (via Amazon lookup, or manually)
* Organize your texts into Collections
* Join Groups of like-minded Readers
* Comment on and add Tags to Authors, Collections, Texts, and Groups
* Share your findings with Friends

Upcoming Features
* Import/Export feature set
* Citation Generation tools
* Hybrid Searches combining Authors and Readers of Texts
* Text Recommendation system

We are working hard toward a major release by the end of summer and we
would be very grateful for any feedback and suggestions that you may
have. We're particularly keen to receive feedback from those of you
who are considering using Digital Texts 2.0 for establishing reading
lists for courses (lists that might be expanded, annotated and shared
by students).

Yours on behalf of the Digital Texts 2.0 team,

St=E9fan Sinclair
