Finding Subjects in MMD
By Jan Kijlstra

Dear Robbie, Every now and then the Dutch street organ shows up in the MMD. And of course a lot of other subjects are of interest to me and other MMD-members, but I would like to find out if, in any way, a more subject-oriented way of communication could be achieved.

[ Editors note:
[ That's a tough problem, Jan. Right now the Digest is "serial access
[ text data"; one must trudge through all the articles one-after-
[ another. The communication aspect is the nice part: a letter in
[ response can appear the next day in the Digest.
[ Unlike a newspaper, which prints a title preceding each story (the
[ "headline"), we try to compose a short subject description which can
[ be found by a computer search engine, or even a string search utility
[ at the reader's computer. But usually there is space for mention of
[ only one subject, thus an article about H. Moehlmann organs in a movie
[ probably won't have mention of Dutch street organs in the subject
[ line.
[ In just a short time Jody and Bob Fitterman will announce the new index
[ and search features which Bob has developed for the MMD Archives.
[ I hope this will help you and others searching for specific subjects.
[ Robbie
