Dear Humanist,

ICT Guides is a service offered by the Arts and Humanities Data
Service (AHDS) 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


  From Partition to Direct Rule: 50 Years of Northern Ireland
Parliamentary Debates Online (Stormont Papers)

" Casting a unique and valuable light on the development of Northern
Ireland, the Papers consist of the Parliamentary Papers of the
devolved government of Northern Ireland from June 7 1921 to the
dissolution of Parliament in March 28 1972. They make up 84 printed
volumes - around 93,000 pages and 74 million words. Based on the
model of British Hansard, the papers record the utterances of MPs
sitting at the Stormont Parliament within the first period of Home
Rule. " See:
