Classics in the Million Book Library

15 November 2006

After the Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer Science, a group met at the University of Chicago as a part of a Mellon-funded project, centered at Tufts University, to explore the question, “What do you do with a million books?”

Today this working group issued a statement, now available in pdf and doc formats.

This position paper is intended as a starting point for an open public discussion that attracts multiple voices and perspectives. It will be particularly helpful if such discussion takes place on the Digital Classicist list, to which anyone interested my subscribe.

A call for scholarly papers on this topic due December 15 is available here. A final workshop will take place at Tufts University, May 22-24, 2007.
