Humanities research: new cultural access through IT


In collaboration with great research libraries and education institutions, the Humanities Research Institute is making major landmarks in literary and cultural heritage directly available to both the academic community and to a much wider public audience. Definitive electronic editions of major and diverse literary texts, historical manuscripts and contemporary archives are being published worldwide, using CD-ROMs and the internet. The projects include detailed textual analysis and sophisticated searching and analytical software.
