Dear Humanist,

ICT Guides is a new service being offered by the Arts and Humanities
Data Service at King's College, London. It seeks to promote the use
of ICTs in research and learning through cataloging best-practice
digital arts and humanities projects, along with the tools and
methods they employed.

The following new projects have been added to ICT Guides in March.


"PARADISEC (the Pacific And Regional Archive for Digital Sources in
Endangered Cultures) offers a facility for digital conservation and
access for endangered materials from the Pacific region, defined
broadly to include Oceania and East and Southeast Asia. Our research
group has developed models to ensure that the archive can provide
access to interested communities, and conforms with emerging
international standards for digital archiving" See:
