It includes detailed documentary information on 30 Pompeian houses and

FEATURES on http://www.humbul.ac.uk/
We are currently highlighting topical issues in the Humanities on the home
page as well as on the subject specific pages. The features include
suggestions of searches and records of particular interest. Examples of
recent features are 'National Poetry Day' and 'Jacques Derrida'.
* To assist the ability to browse across subject areas we are beginning to
group together particular types of resources. You can now access from the
home page listings of AHRB projects and freely available electronic
THE BEST OF THE WEB - subject booklets from Humbul
Humbul has published its first subject booklet: Internet Resources for
English. The 16-page booklet, which details a wide range of useful online
resources for English Studies, was produced in collaboration with the
English Subject Centre (part of the Higher Education Academy) and with
generous sponsorship from Proquest Information and Learning. The resources
listed in the booklet have also been gathered on a separate webpage for
easy access. Visit http://www.humbul.ac.uk/english/booklet/ to learn more
about the guide or the resources therein. A similar guide for History is
currently in production with further guides being planned.
Randy Metcalfe, formerly communications manager for Humbul, now performs a
similar job for OSS Watch -- the JISC-funded pilot Open Source Software
Advisory Service also hosted within the Research Technologies Service
(http://www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/rts/).  With the wrapping up of the Subject
Portals Project (SPP) Francisco Pinto, formerly Humbul's Interoperability
Officer, is now Technical Manager for two JISC Core Middleware Projects
being run within the RTS -- the Shibboleth-enabled Portals and Information
Environments (SPIE) Project and the Evaluation of Shibboleth and PKI for
Grids (ESP-Grid) Project. See further
FEATURED RESOURCE: Oxford Dictionary of National Biography
After 12 years in development, the new Oxford Dictionary of National
Biography was published by Oxford University Press on September 23. The
DNB, available both online and in a 60-volume print edition, describes the
lives of over 50,000 people who have made an impression upon British
history, society, and culture. The online version is available by
subscription to individuals and institutions. Potential subscribers may
request a free trial. The Humbul record for the project web page, which
was first added to the catalogue in 2002, has now been updated to coincide
with the publication of the new DNB and to reflect changes to the web site
(http://www.humbul.ac.uk/output/full2.php?id=5222). The JISC are running a
consultation exercise until 23 October to establish the number of further
and higher education institutions that would be interested in subscribing
to the online edition
We always welcome feedback, positive or negative, on the service we run.
Please send us your comments at http://www.humbul.ac.uk/feedback.html
The Humbul Humanities Hub is a service of the Resource Discovery Network
funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee and the Arts and
Humanities Research Board, and is supported by the University of Oxford.
