A Companion to Digital Humanities online

January 10th, 2007 by Gabriel Bodard

Seen in Humanist:

I’m pleased to announce that the complete text of A Companion to Digital Humanities, ed. Susan Schreibman, Ray Siemens, John Unsworth (Oxford: Blackwell, 2004) is now freely available online, at http://www.digitalhumanities.org/companion/ —please forward this announcement to other lists and communities who may be interested in the news. Thanks very much to Blackwell for agreeing to this arrangement, and to Jonathan Gorman of the UIUC libraries (and the UIUC Gradaute School of Library and Information Science) for modifying XTF (from the California Digital Library) so that it works with the Blackwell DTD. The editors encourage you to consider buying the paperback when it comes out in the fall of 2007. Also, if you spot typos or other errors in the text, please send them to John Unsworth [unsworth@uiuc.edu].

As far as I can see there is no special provision for downloading or printing the articles, but the advantage of course is being able to search and cite (and if you want it on paper, buy it!). The volume includes Harrison Eiteljorg’s ‘Computing for Archaeologists‘ and Greg Crane’s ‘Classics and the Computer: An End of the History‘.

    These is a print option. Check out the series of commands on the top window’s left side. Clicking on “Print View” yields a frameless page, formatted for printing.
    For example, the literary studies article:

    Thank you for the pointer!
