Session Abstract

Individuals from areas covered by the broadband networks of CalREN, Internet2, ENSTINET, RENATER, GARR, TERENA and DANTE participated in an International Forum on Digital Humanities, Digital Libraries and Virtual Museums on March 2, 2007. They focused on how broadband networks can be applied to the humanities, libraries and museums. At the Web Wise 2007 Conference in Washington, DC on March 1-2, 2007 individuals from NEH, the Library of Congress and IMLS discussed programs on digital humanities. The forum and the conference both benefited from the output of the workshop on the Digital Library of the Middle East held at the Library of Alexandria on January 15-17, 2007. Sharing ideas, collaborating across domestic and foreign borders, funding and developing standards for interoperability are all necessary requirements for successful implementation of international digital humanities projects.
