Dear Elena and John,

centerNet is currently looking at taking over arts-humanities.net as a 
publication of centerNet. A transition committee that I chair has been 
looking at this question and we are tentatively recommending that an 
online resource for the discovery and review of projects should be 
pursued. John is right that such a resource takes a great deal of time 
to maintain, but we still believe it would benefit our centre members. I 
would appreciate any thoughts on the subject that others have as we 
finalize our recommendations.

Yours,

Geoffrey Rockwell

The MLA maintains a list of DH projects 
 http://www.mla.org/publications/bibliography/bib_search  that might be 
of interest.
