Some good news

* The announcement of a Humanities Research Network, intended to provide “a comprehensive online resource for research in humanities, providing scholars with access to current work in their field and facilitating research and scholarship”. It’s starting with just three networks: Classic, English and American literature, Philosophy. Let’s hope History follows along soon…

* I posted a few weeks ago that the Arts and Humanities Data Service was losing most of its funding and was in danger of closing. Fortunately, however, King’s College London is establishing a new Centre for E-Research which will take over responsibility for the AHDS next year.

* The 19th-century British Newspaper Website has been launched: “a virtual library of nationally, regionally and locally important digitised British newspapers from 1800 to 1900”, which will be free for folks in UK HE/FE institutions.
