Dear Humanists,

We have seen an increasing amount of digital
resources and service being made available over
the last couple of years. Many of these resources
can make certain tasks a lot easier or enable
researchers to ask new questions or get better
answers to existing ones. However, researchers in
the Arts and Humanities are perhaps not as aware
of these resources as they could be.

To help people get started, JISC have recently
published a briefing paper highlighting its
services and projects particularly of interest to the A&H community:

This has prompted us, together with JISC, to
start a discussion about what could be done to
make Arts and Humanities researchers aware of the
breadth of helpful resources out there. This is a
chance for the community to discuss what kind of
support they need and to engage in a discussion
that might also inform the policy of funding bodies such as JISC.

Do you have relevant ideas, experiences or
suggestions -- even questions -- then make your voice heard at
(short link http://www.arts-humanities.net/node/509)

Feel free to forward this to anyone interested.
We would very much value your input!

Kind regards,
