* Mandate

about, and to advance skills in the new computing technologies that
influence the way in which those in the Arts and Humanities carry out their

staff, and graduate student theorists, experimentalists, technologists, and
administrators from different areas of the Arts and Humanities -- plus
members of the digital library, library, and archival studies community,
and beyond -- to share ideas and methods, and to develop expertise in
applying advanced technologies to their teaching and research.

            This year the summer institute is pleased to associate itself with
the 2005 ACH/ALLC Conference taking place at the University of Victoria
June 15-18. The Institute workshops will take place immediately before the
