Guidelines for submitting material to the Wisconsin's French Connections Project

If you have material that you would like to have added to the WFC Project Web site, there are a number of ways this can be done.

Shorter documents can be sent in an e-mail message to the WFC Webmaster

Longer text documents may be sent as an attachment to an e-mail message. The attached document should be in ASCII text (.txt) format. (Most of the major word processing software, such as WordPerfect or Word, offer the option of saving documents as text documents.)

Documents may also be sent on diskette to:
Professor Ken Fleurant
Modern Language Program
Theatre Hall 331
University of Wisconsin--Green Bay
Green Bay, WI 54311
Professor Gabrielle Verdier, WFC Project Director
Department of French. Italian and Comparative Literature
P.O. Box 413
Milwaukee, WI 53201

Documents sent via diskette should be in text (.txt) format. If you have difficulty saving the document as text, you may send files in WordPerfect or Microsoft Word format for either PC (preferred) or Macintosh. Keep in mind that your document will have to be converted to text format, and, consequently, may lose some formatting.

Documents already typed on paper may be sent via mail for us to scan. Please only send Xerox copies of these documents, not the original document, if it is something you do not want to lose. Typed documents that will be scanned, must be good, dark copies.

Photographs may be sent to the above addresses. Please do not send valuable, one-of-a-kind photos. It would be best to send a copy of the photo.

Photographs may also be scanned and submitted either on diskette or as an e-mail attachment. If your scanner allows, save the scanned photo as a .jpg file. Otherwise, save the file as a .tif file or as a bitmap (.bmp) file. If you can, save scanned images at 256 colors and 72 dots per inch resolution. Images may lose some quality at those settings, but that is how they are seen on the Internet.

Drawings or other images may be scanned as well. Or, if they are not one-of-a- kind, valuables, they may be sent via surface mail for us to scan.
If you have an interesting, but valuable, picture, manuscript, old photo, etc. that you would like to share with others on the WFC Project Web site, please contact us to discuss possibilities. It may be possible for you to simply photograph an object or manuscript (in natural light-- outdoors if possible-- or on a copy stand, if you have one available to you, using tungsten-balanced film). Otherwise, we may be able to help find someone at a UW Campus near you who could help make a copy. Even if they are not perfectly clear, a photograph of an interesting handwritten manuscript, picture or magazine cover can be very interesting.

If you know HTML (for Web construction), you may send information in that format. Class projects, for example, might result in a number of web pages that could be posted on the WFC site. If you have a web page or create one that is related to the Wisconsin's French Connections theme, and is on your own server, please let us know its URL so we can create a link from the WFC home page.

Please contact us if you have any questions or care to discuss the best way for you to submit documents or other material that you would be willing to share.
