Important Computer-Based Projects in the Humanities and Arts
During the discussion of the Working Group on Electronic Resources, participants alluded to a number of projects and products in order to illustrate points about needs and achievements in the humanities and arts. These projects were considered to be in some way exemplary, but the compilation of examples in no way provides a comprehensive survey or even ensures that the “best” project in any category was cited. This list is simply a collection of projects put forward at the meeting, and does not in any sense serve as a resource directory.
