Dear colleagues,

A letter has been sent to the British Arts and Humanities Research
Council, asking for clarification on the future of digital preservation
and dissemination of good practice given the AHRCís recent announcement
[[1]] that funding for the Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) will
be terminated early next year. This information-seeking letter (copied
at [[2]]) has been signed on behalf of the Digital Classicist,
Antiquist, Digital Medievalist, and TEI communities.

Any comments on this letter, or on the AHRC's eventual response, may be
discussed here and/or in the comments thread at [[3]].
