The Third International Conference brings together the creators,
users, distributors, and curators of Digital Resources in the
Humanities will be held in Glasgow in 1998.
DRH98 is the internationally recognised forum for all those
involved in and benefiting from the digitisation 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 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
characterises contemporary culture and scholarship.
Creation and management of digital resources (e.g. textual,
visual, and time-based). Integration of digital resources as
multimedia. Policies and strategies for electronic delivery, both
commercial and non-commercial. Cataloguing and metadata aspects
of resource discovery. Implications of digital resources and
electronic delivery for teaching, learning, and scholarship.
Encoding standards. Rights management (e.g. intellectual property
rights). Funding, cost-recovery, and charging mechanisms.
Digitisation techniques and problems.
The conference will take up three intensive days of papers, panel
discussions, technical reports, and software demonstrations,
between the evening of 9th September 1998 and lunchtime on the
12th September 1998.
The atmosphere will, we hope, encourage a lot of energetic
discussion, both formal and informal. Leading practitioners of
the application of digital techniques and resources in the
humanities, from the worlds of scholarship, librarianship, and
publishing will be there, exchanging expertise, experience, and
