        Subject: Brown University Center for Digital Scholarship

We are very pleased to announce the launch of the Center for Digital  
Scholarship, a new digital center in the Brown University Library. The  
CDS is a focal point for digital humanities research and development  
at Brown, working in close partnership with individual researchers and  
academic centers across the campus and at other institutions. Among  
its activiites are outreach programs, internships, digitization and  
enhancement of significant library collections, lectures and events,  
project development and grant development.

Under the leadership of Patrick Yott, Director of Digital  
Technologies, the CDS brings together several groups, each with its  
own long history:

The Scholarly Technology Group
Founded in 1994, STG has been a center of activity in digital  
humanities scholarship, with a strong program of research and  
publication projects, events and grant development and support.

The Women Writers Project
First funded in 1988, the WWP is a research group with a dual focus on  
early women's writing and the impact of digital textuality on  
humanities scholarship. The WWP publishes Women Writers Online and  
conducts grant-funded research on text encoding and digital  
scholarship; it also provides seminars, workshops, and documentation  
on using the TEI Guidelines.

The Center for Digital Initiatives
Founded in 2001, the CDI provides high-quality digitization, metadata  
development, repository services, and consultation on digital projects.
