DIGITAL RESOURCES FOR THE HUMANITIES '97 September 14-17 1997, St Anne's College, Oxford FINAL CALL FOR REGISTRATIONS ***** Closing date is now 15th August*****
DRH97 aims to become a new forum for all those affected by the digitization of our common cultural heritage: the scholar producing or using an electronic edition; the teacher using digital media in the seminar room; the publisher finding new ways to reach new markets; the librarian, curator, art historian, or archivist wishing to improve both access to and conservation of the digital information that characterizes contemporary culture and scholarship. The conference fee of 250 pounds covers lunches, dinners, and the whole academic programme. The conference banquet will cost an additional 40 pounds. For accommodation, delegates can choose between ensuite rooms at 45 pounds/day or study/bedrooms with shared bathroom at 30 pounds/day for bed and breakfast. All accommodation is in St Anne's College, in modern purpose-built blocks adjoining the quadrangle and within a few minutes walk of all conference facilities. A number of conference bursaries are available. The conference web site at http://users.ox.ac.uk/~drh97/ is regularly updated, and includes full details of the programme and registration information.
