BACKGROUND TO THE CONFERENCE

The 3rd International Conference on Digital Resources in the Humanities
brings together the creators, users, distributors, and curators of digital
resources. DRH is the internationally recognised forum for those involved
in and benefiting from the digisation of our common cultural heritage. 
From the large number of proposals the Advisory Board has chosen 110
papers from leading practitioners in the application of digital techniques
and resources in the humanities, from the worlds of scholarship,
librarianship, and publishing to make this Conference once again the key
forum for those working in the humanities and digital resources.  The
programme spread over three days is complemented by software
demonstrations, an exhibition, and a rich social programme including
receptions, lunches, dinners and a Ceilidh.  All these things exciting
academic and social programme should create an atmosphere encourging
energetic discussion and the exchange of ideas.
