Dear James

This is an excellent initiative and very much to be welcomed. It does however seem like a very strange selection of categories. I can think for example of one book which has appeared during the year which would be worth nominating, but the DH Publications category doesn't mention books. Likewise, the most important DH online achievements are often digital editions, archives or other online resources, but I cannot see how these fit in. Are these accidental exclusions, or do the categories ned revisiting?

With all best wishes

Andrew
