    The DRH conferences

    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 scholar creating or using an electronic resource to
    further research; the teacher gathering Web resources into an online
    learning environment; the publisher or broadcaster integrating print or
    analogue with the digital to reach new audiences; the librarian, curator
    or archivist wishing to improve both access to and conservation of the
    digital information that characterizes contemporary culture and
    scholarship; the computer or information scientist seeking to apply new
    developments to the creation, exploitation and management of humanities
    resources. A volume of selected papers from the conferences is published
    annually by the Office for Humanities Communication at King's College
    London. See http://www.drh.org.uk/.

    DRH 2002
    DRH 2002 will be held at the University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh University
    Library, George Square, Edinburgh EH8 9LJ, Scotland UK, from 8th-11th
    September 2002. Conference information will be posted on the Web site at

    Subscribers to the Humanist list may find the following Rare Book School
    courses to be of particular interest:

    11-15). Encoded Archival Description (EAD) provides standardized
    machine-readable access to primary resource materials. This course is aimed
    at archivists, librarians, and museum personnel who would like an
    introduction to EAD that includes an extensive supervised hands-on
    component. Students will learn SGML encoding techniques in part using
    examples selected from among their own institution's finding aids. Topics:
    the context out of which EAD emerged; introduction to the use of SGML
    authoring tools and browsers; the conversion of existing finding aids to
    EAD. Instructor: Daniel Pitti.

    DANIEL PITTI became Project Director at the University of Virginia's
    Institute for Advanced Technology in 1997, before which he was Librarian
    for Advanced Technologies at the University of California, Berkeley. He was
    the Coordinator of the Encoded Archival Description initiative.

             Subject: Advance Notice - Manuscript Studies Symposium


    The University of London Library, the Centre for Palaeography and the
    Institute of English Studies within the University of London are pleased to
    announce an International Symposium entitled:

    "The Future of Manuscript Studies in a Switched-On World"
    to be held at the Senate House, University of London on 18th March 2002.

    The symposium will be an international forum to discuss the role library
    collections and services, and information technology should play in
    promoting and supporting research and teaching in this field in the 21st

    The ULL will put forward its innovative vision for a virtual library
    service, an International Manuscript Studies Portal, seeking to secure the
    broadest academic feedback and support. This initiative builds on the
    success of the current project funded by the UK Research Support Libraries
    Programme entitled Palaeography - Developing the National Resource
    (http://www.palaeography.ac.uk), under completion by a library consortium
    of the University of London Library (lead site), and the Universities of
    Durham and Liverpool.

    We are pleased to have received much interest in both the Portal and the
    symposium, and are currently finalising the list of speakers and the
    conference programme. This event would be of particular interest to those
    involved in manuscript and book studies, palaeography, computing in the
    humanities, subject gateways and digital libraries.

    Registration details will be sent out in January 2002. Further information
    is available from Mura Ghosh, Palaeography Project Officer, University of
    London Library, by telephone at 00 44 (0) 207 862 8475 or by e-mail at
