D-LIB and AHDS Newsletters

Below is a fresh announcement from the British Arts and Humanities Data
Service about its second newsletter, available on its website and an older
announcement from D-LIB Magazine on its June issue.

Apologies for the lacuna in NINCH announcements during my recent absence in
the UK and the last week of catching up with pressing business.

David Green


The second edition of the Newsletter from the Arts and Humanities
Data Service for UK universities is now available from our web
site <http://ahds.ac.uk/>.

In addition to AHDS news items, the current issue focuses on resource
discovery with contributions about metadata, about integrating access to
diverse on-line collections and catalogues, and about Internet gateways
for the humanities.

We are also launching a new feature involving case studies written by and
for humanities scholars explaining how the creation or use of digital
resources has enhanced their research and teaching.

14 - 17 September 1997

'Bringing together the creators, users, distributors, and custodians of
digital resources for the humanities.'


Bursaries available from CTI Textual Studies

As part of our continuing efforts to encourage the use of technology in HE
teaching, the CTI Centre for Textual Studies is offering a limited number
of bursaries for attendance at the Digital Resources for the Humanities
conference. Applications for the bursaries are sought from those involved
in UK Higher Education teaching in the Arts and Humanities, and who have
an established interest in the use of technology in teaching. This will
primarily include HE teaching staff, but specialist IT Support Staff, and
Subject Librarians are also welcome to apply.

Application is by submission of a brief statement of interest
(approximately 250 words) outlining your interest in the use of IT in HE
teaching, preferably with some detail of current or planned implementation
of IT in teaching. Bursaries cover the cost of registration fees, which
includes the full academic programme, lunches and dinners (excluding the
Conference Banquet). Accommodation, breakfast, and travel costs are not
included. Places are limited to one per institution.

Applications, including statement of interest, full contact details
(including an email address), and institutional affiliation, should be
submitted by Friday August 1st 1997.

An online submission form and further details are available at:
