Guide to Digital Resources for the Humanities 2000

The CTI (Computers in Teaching Initiative) Center for Textual Studies in the United Kingdom launched in February this web version of their Guide to Digital Resources for the Humanities 2000, but only recently posted its first installment of significant content: "Starting points on the Internet," by Frances Condron. This webliographic essay takes readers through the major digital libraries and archives; gateways; search engines, guides, and tools; discussion lists and email; and computing organizations pertinent to research in the humanities. While there are no surprises here in terms of resources (Arts and Humanities Data Service, Oxford Text Archive, Library of Congress, Internet Detective, Northern Light, and other similarly well-established sites), it is useful to have them all in one place with extensive accompanying explanation of the content and features of each resource. In fact, instructors wishing to introduce university students to responsible Internet research would do well to point their students to this Website. In coming months, subject-specific installments will be added, including Classics and ancient history, Language and linguistics, Literature in English and other languages, Media and film, Philosophy, Teaching, learning and assessment resources, and several others.
