Review: The Bookworm Romeo & Juliet
The CTI Centre has a new Research Officer. We are pleased to welcome Sarah Porter who joined the Centre on 1st October from Liverpool John Moores University where she was Project Co-Ordinator for the eLib project, 'On-Demand Publishing in the Humanities'. Sarah has a BA in French and Psychology from the University of Leicester and has recently completed a postgraduate course in Humanities Computing at the University of Kent. In addition, we are also pleased to learn that Joyce Martin has been appointed Head of the CTI Support Service, replacing Jonathan Darby who departed during the summer to take up an appointment as Director of Technology-Assisted Life-Long Learning in Oxford University. This is good news for the CTI during a year in the funding bodies are about to undertake a major review of the CTI's future role.
This is the first issue of Computers & Texts to carry the logo of the Oxford Text Archive. We are pleased to work with the Archive in this way and it seems particularly appropriate given the importance of electronic texts to both the CTI Centre and the Archive, as well as, of course, Michael Popham¹s former role as CTI Centre Manager, and the expressed aim of the AHDS to collaborate with other information services.
Occasionally it is possible to identify general elements which ensure the success or otherwise of a project. Our lead article demonstrates what a humanities department can achieve if the appropriate funding and support are in place at an institutional level together with the relevant academic expertise in the department. We are always interested in receiving articles and reports from UK readers relating to computer-based projects for teaching in the humanities, whether designed for local use or with a view to commercial publication.
Following the success of the first conference on Digital Resources in the Humanities held in Oxford in July 1996, it has been decided to hold a second one, again in Oxford, in September 1997. This event, sponsored by the Office for Humanities Communication, the British Library, the Arts and Humanities Data Service, and the Humanities Computing Unit at Oxford, aims to become a forum for all users, creators, custodians, and publishers using the new digital demotic. A first call for papers will appear in December: for more information, see the conference web pages at http://users.ox.ac.uk/~drh97/
Editorial Postscript Articles, reviews, and reports for the next issue of Computers & Texts should arrive at CTI Textual Studies by 28th February 1997. Please submit a printed version and an electronic version. The electronic version should either be on a 3.5" disk or sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
