7- Information about La Rioja
La Rioja is located in Northern Spain. This region is known for its
wine production and its natural richness (cultivated valleys and
almost untouched oak and beechwood forests in the mountains). Several
of its towns are part of the pilgrimage route to Santiago de
Compostela and the monastery of San Millin de la Cogolla is home to
the first written documents in the Spanish language. The University of
La Rioja's interest in language studies has given rise to the
organization of several International Conferences on Historical
Linguistics. For more information on the area and on the University of
La Rioja visit the following webpages:

 * DRH 97 *
 * DIGITAL RESOURCES FOR THE HUMANITIES *
 * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
 St Anne's College, Oxford
 14 - 17 September 1997

 "Bringing together the creators, users, distributors,
 and custodians of Digital Resources in the Humanities."

 SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS

 *PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF TIMETABLE BELOW*

 Mission: DRH97 aims to become a new forum for all those affected by
 the digitization of our common cultural heritage: the scholar
 producing or using an electronic edition; the teacher using digital
 media in the seminar room; the publisher finding new ways to reach new
 markets; the librarian, curator, art historian, or archivist wishing
 to improve both access to and conservation of the digital information
 that characterizes contemporary culture and scholarship.

 Format: The conference will take up three intensive days of academic
 papers, panel discussions, technical reports, and software
 demonstrations, held this year in a comfortable Oxford college. The
 atmosphere will, we hope, encourage a lot of energetic discussion,
 both formal and informal. Leading practitioners of the application of
 digital techniques and resources in the Humanities, from the worlds of
 scholarship, librarianship, and publishing will be there, exchanging
 expertise, experience, and opinions.

 Sponsors: The conference is sponsored by the British Library, the
 Office for Humanities Communication, the Arts and Humanities Data
 Service, the Centre for Computing in the Humanities of Kings College
 London, the International Institute for Electronic Library Research of
 de Montfort University, the Library of University College London, and
 the Humanities Computing Unit of Oxford University.

* Timetable: Proposals are now invited for academic papers, themed
* panel sessions and reports of work in progress. Extended abstracts
* (1500 to two thousand words) should be submitted by *May 2nd
* 1997*. Proposals will be reviewed by an independent panel of
* reviewers, and notifications of acceptance will be sent out by
* 13th June. All accepted proposals will be included in the
* Conference preprint volume, and will also be considered for a
* post-conference publication.

 Themes: creation of digital resources, textual, visual, and
 time-based; integration of digital resources as multimedia;
 policies and strategies for electronic delivery, both commercial
 and non-commercial; cataloguing and metadata aspects of resource
 discovery; implications of digital resources and electronic delivery
 for teaching, learning, and scholarship; encoding standards;
 intellectual property rights; funding, cost-recovery, and charging
 mechanisms; digitization techniques and problems.

 Cost and accommodation: The conference fee of 250 pounds covers
 lunches, dinners, and the whole academic programme. The conference
 banquet will cost an additional 40 pounds. For accommodation,
 delegates can choose between ensuite rooms at 45 pounds/day or
 study/bedrooms with shared bathroom at 30 pounds/day for B & B. All
 accommodation is in St Anne's College, in modern purpose-built blocks
 adjoining the quadrangle and within a few minutes walk of all
 conference facilities.

 http://users.ox.ac.uk/~drh97/ will be regularly updated, and will
