Subject: Humanities Computing Repository

*** Please distribute widely ***
to any and all computing humanists


The Prospect of the inaugural number of Computers in the Humanities (1966)
gives as the principle goals of the journal to encourage collaboration
between researchers of various Humanites disciplines and to minimize
needless repetition of work. The Humanities Computing Repository has the
very same objectives.

The Repository is a dynamic database that allows researchers to add
entries for their work. Since these entries are available through the
World Wide Web, they are easily accessible to all who might be interested.
The Repository has very recently been made available, so please take a few
moments to add an entry if you have worked on or are currently working on
any project that you think may be of use to others. These projects
include, but are not limited to, scholarly articles and journals, computer
programs and databases.

The interest and usefulness of a central repository for applications in
humanistic computing need surely not be insisted upon. We look forward to
seeing a description of your work in the Humanities Computing Repository.
