DRH98 is the internationally recognised forum for all those involved in and benefiting from the digitisation of our common cultural heritage: the scholar producing or using an electronic edition; the teacher using digital media in the seminar room; the publisher finding ways to reach new markets; the librarian, curator, art historian, or archivist wishing to improve both access to and conservation of the digital information that characterises contemporary culture and scholarship. Conference Themes Creation and management of digital resources (e.g. textual, visual, and time-based). Integration of digital resources as multimedia. Policies and strategies for electronic delivery, both commercial and non-commercial. Cataloguing and metadata aspects of resource discovery. Implications of digital resources and electronic delivery for teaching, learning, and scholarship. Encoding standards. Rights management (e.g. intellectual property rights). Funding, cost-recovery, and charging mechanisms. Digitisation techniques and problems. Conference format The conference will take up three intensive days of papers, panel discussions, technical reports, and software demonstrations, between the evening of 9th September 1998 and lunchtime on the 12th September 1998. The atmosphere will, we hope, encourage a lot of energetic discussion, both formal and informal. Leading practitioners of the application of digital techniques and resources in the humanities, from the worlds of scholarship, librarianship, and publishing will be there, exchanging expertise, experience, and opinions.
