following paragraph:

   "The Manuscripts Department is pleased to announce the implementation
   of Encoded Archival Description (EAD). The EAD Document Type Definition
   (DTD) is a standard for encoding archival finding aids using the Standard
   Generalized Markup Lanugage (SGML). Finding aids encoded in SGML using
   the EAD DTD can be viewed using the Panorama Viewer. SGML-encoded finding
   aids are also offered in HTML versions, which do not require a special
   viewer. SGML/HTML-encoded finding aids include:
     Papers of slave trader and plantation owner Rice C. Ballard;
     Papers of poet Jeffery Beam;
     Papers of playwright Paul Green;
     Papers of novelist Jill McCorkle; and
     Records of the Southern Growth Policies Board, a public reserach
