The Future of Manuscript Studies in a Switched-On World
The University of London Library, the Centre for Palaeography and the Institute of English Studies within the University of London are pleased to announce an International Symposium entitled:
"The Future of Manuscript Studies in a Switched-On World"
to be held at the Senate House, University of London on 18th March 2002.
The ULL will put forward its innovative vision for a virtual library service, an International Manuscript Studies Portal, seeking to secure the broadest academic feedback and support. This initiative builds on the success of the current project funded by the UK Research Support Libraries Programme entitled Palaeography - Developing the National Resource (http://www.palaeography.ac.uk), under completion by a library consortium of the University of London Library (lead site), and the Universities of Durham and Liverpool.
We are pleased to have received much interest in both the Portal and the symposium, and are currently finalising the list of speakers and the conference programme. This event would be of particular interest to those involved in manuscript and book studies, palaeography, computing in the humanities, subject gateways and digital libraries.
Registration details will be sent out in January 2002. Further information is available from Mura Ghosh, Palaeography Project Officer, University of London Library, by telephone at 00 44 (0) 207 862 8475 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
