    A conference that brings together the creators, users, distributors, and
    custodians of digital resources in the Humanities.

    8th - 10th July, 2001
    School of Oriental and African Studies, London

    The annual Digital Resources for the Humanities conference is the major
    forum for all those involved in, and affected by, the digitization of our
    cultural heritage. The conference brings together scholars, teachers,
    publishers and broadcasters, librarians, curators and archivists, and
    computer and information specialists, providing an opportunity to consider
    the latest ideas in the creation and use of digital resources in all
    aspects of work in the humanities.

    This year the conference will be held at the School of Oriental and
    African Studies, University of London. As well as concentrating on the
    creation of digital resources, providing access to digital projects, and
    digital preservation, this conference will consider the challenges of
    building communities within a diverse and global context, with papers on
    the following themes:

    * Visualisation of data
    * A managed digital environment
    * Diversity and multi-culturalism
    * World wide access
    * Convergence

    As well as the formal academic programme of papers, panel discussions,
    exhibitions and presentations, the conference will provide an enjoyable
    range of social activities where delegates can meet and informal
    discussion can flourish.

    The conference fee of 235 pounds sterling (inc VAT) includes full
    conference programme and all the social activities. Further details of the
    conference and an online booking form are available from the web site at
