Subject: Digital Resources in the Humanities '97 - preprint volume

Tidying up at the Humanities Computing Unit last week (yes it does happen)
we discovered an extra box of copies of the fat volume of conference
preprints distributed to participants in the recent Digital Resources in the
Humanities conference, held at Oxford in September.

It occurs to me that readers of this list might like the chance to buy a
copy of this excellent volume in handy paper format, although the contents
also remain available on the web at the conference web site
After all, the book format allows you to read in the bath, or on public
transport when your laptop battery has died. It also looks really keen on
your bookshelf, and makes a superb Christmas gift for that hard to please
scholarly person in your life!

The 350 page book provides a snapshot of the current state of play in the
community of all those creating, using, distributing, and curating digital
resources in the humanities, with over 70 papers from a wide spectrum of
active players in this new world. For details, see the web site mentioned above.

Copies are available at 30 pounds ($25) each, post free. Send your order to
Abigail Cook (abigail.cooke@oucs.ox.ac.uk, fax +44 1865 273 275), using the
order form below. Please enclose payment made out to "Oxford University
Computing Services". We can also accept credit card (Access or Visa only)

Watch this space for announcements of the edited highlights volume from the
conference, to be published by the Office for Humanities Communication next
