One of the most important ‘digital humanities’ groups working in Australia is the Australia and New Zealand Digital Encyclopaedia group. They have a meeting coming up soon; possibly in Melbourne. Keep an eye on there web-site or subscribe to their list.
The Australia and New Zealand Digital Encyclopaedia Group (ANZDEG) is a loose affiliation of people working on, or associated with, online reference collections. We include people working on small, individual projects and members of large institutions – the definition of “digital encyclopaedia” is deliberately vague so as to encompass a broad range of projects and interests. The group includes people working in eResearch and digital humanities, libraries and archives, museums, web publishing and computing science (link).
