        Subject: DHO Announces DRAPIer Database Expansion

The DHO is proud to announce the expansion of the DRAPIer database.

Building on the success of DRAPIer as a resource for Digital Humanities scholars in Irish Higher Education, DRAPIer will now facilitate the inclusion of digital collections from Irish Cultural Heritage Institutions. Moreover,  institutions outside of the island of Ireland who host digital collections in the area of Irish studies may also have their collections listed in the database.  This expanded mandate will better reflect, highlight and promote the wide interest in Irish cultural heritage at a global level.

Inclusion in DRAPIer offers the opportunity to present and promote projects to an international audience.

DRAPIer now welcomes projects that:

 *   are affiliated with a higher education or cultural institution on the island of Ireland, or a higher education or cultural institution outside of Ireland that has created digital resources focusing on Ireland or Irish studies;
 *   involve digital arts, humanities or humanities/science interdisciplinary research and;
 *   produce, or have produced, substantially extant digital content or deliverables.

We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to be part of this showcase of Irish Digital Humanities research. An FAQ with more information about submitting and maintaining projects in DRAPIer is available at http://dho.ie/node/633. Any further questions can be submitted using the contact form: http://dho.ie/drapier/contact
