Announcing: FIDLH 2009 – the second annual Fall Institute in Digital  
Libraries and Humanities

FIDLH 2008 was held at the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton,  
NB, September 25th, 26th, and 27th thanks to the support of the  
Electronic Text Centre at UNB Libraries
http://www.lib.unb.ca/Texts, the Digital Culture Observatory at Acadia  
University, and the University of New Brunswick and Acadia University.
More than 30 librarians, library staff, humanists, and students  
attended FIDLH 2008, and all reported a very positive and collegial  
learning experience.

FIDLH 2009 will be held at Acadia University, in Wolfville, NS,  
September 24th, 25th, and 26th.  This year, as last the cost will be  
$300.00 per employed participant and $100.00 per student.  Acadia’s  
Office of Graduate Studies and Research has offered to help defer the  
cost of student participation, so depending on the number of students  
who register student costs will be slightly or significantly less than  
the $100.00 posted rate.  One day participation will also be available  
at a rate of $100.00.

Each of the three days will begin with a plenary talk on a topic of  
interest to those in attendance, followed by a morning and an  
afternoon workshop in which participants will choose from among the  
following offerings: using the Open Journal Systems (OJS) for  
electronic journal management, XML encoding for journal articles, Data  
Conversion and Digital Imaging, Tools for Text Analysis, Concepts in  
Text Analysis, Designing and Implementing Usability Tests, and Using  
Computer Games in Teaching.

Participants should plan to bring their own laptop or netbook  
computer.  A limited number of laptops will be available to rent.

Registration for FIDLH 2009 will open July 24, and is accessible  
through our website at http://etc.hil.unb.ca/fidlh2009/

We look forward to seeing you this fall in the beautiful Annapolis
