Point to Point
Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) Case Studies on Digitization, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Board.
The AHDS Case Studies currently number eighteen and more will be added. The case studies show the benefits and obstacles in the creation, delivery and preservation of digital resources. Some provide general introductions to digitization, while others explore particular issues in greater detail, such as funding, copyright, standards, metadata, preservation and delivery. A variety of AHDS-related projects are examined. Different subject areas in the arts and humanities are covered, and examples are drawn from small projects that are close to completion to large-scale programs that are still in the planning stage.
The case studies are located at <http://ahds.ac.uk/casestudies/casestudies.html>.

The school will focus on fundamental issues related to the multidisciplinary area of Digital Libraries. The lecturers of the school are leading researchers in the digital library field, from both the U.S. and Europe. Each lecture will be devoted to a presentation of the state-of-the-art on one of the key DL topics.

The main purpose of the school is to foster research in and understanding of the fundamental technologies underlying the Digital Libraries (DL) field. The school is directed towards members of the research community in the wide sense, that is, graduate students, young researchers and professionals involved in R&D in DL-related areas, possibly representing both the information technology scientist, the industrial communities (electronic publishing, broadcasting, software industry, etc.) and the user communities interested in Digital Libraries technologies (libraries, archives, museums). Study material will be made available at the School.
No qualifications or prerequisites are necessary. However, it is recommended that participants have a basic knowledge of information and database management, together with Internet and Web applications.
The one-week intensive course will consist of nine half-day lectures and one half-day session dedicated to BOF (Birds of a Feather) groups, i.e., discussions in smaller groups on specific topics of common interest, with the participation of the lecturers.
