AHDS Newsletter


Publisher: Arts and Humanities Data Service

The Arts and Humanities Data Service is a UK national service funded by the
JISC and AHRC to collect, preserve and promote the electronic resources
which result from research and teaching in the arts and humanities.

By preserving collections made in the arts and the humanities, the AHDS
encourages research and educational use of its collections and makes
information about them available through online catalogues.

The identification and promotion of shared standards is critical to the
AHDS's work. Preserving and exchanging digital information relies upon their
widespread adoption and so does a more integrated approach to resource
discovery which may help our users to find the resources they require
irrespective of where they are located or how they are stored.

The AHDS seeks the widest possible collaboration in identifying such
standards and documents and promotes these in its Guides to Good Practice,
and its Information Papers. Via a strong national training programme and a
range of other user services, the AHDS also promotes awareness amongst a
number of UK communities about the importance and value of electronic
information and provides guidance in its effective creation and use.

Finally, the AHDS facilitates fruitful partnerships between those
communities in order to enhance the production and preservation of
high-quality digital resources, and to provide more uniform access to them.

The AHDS newsletter is published biannually, in both print and electronic
form. All recent newsletters are made available in the PDF format and HTML
