Computing in the Arts/Humanities
Sponsored by PEINet, Canada
CHORUS is an on-line, hypermedia resource for academic and educational
computing in the arts/humanities. It is aimed primarily at academics,
educators, information professionals, and students (in higher
education). A home-computing and Internet-tools section, however, will
appeal to a broader audience with a less formal interest in using
computers to teach, learn or acquire humanities-related information.
CHORUS is a highly collaborative venture which brings together an
international team of academics and professionals.

hypermedia resource continually shaped by a team of editors and
writers/reviewers into an ever more complex web of information.
