With a very disconcerting question – what would happen if the Pope’s library were accidentally burnt? – an important subject is being discussed. No one wants to hypothetically contend a situation as dire as that, but it is possible. So if indeed, destruction happened, how can we reconstruct history? This interesting topic came from The Ancient World Online in their post, “Digital Humanities and the Ancient World.”

Technology is changing the way we study and preserve texts and artifacts. In an interesting series of articles written by scholars engaged in the digital humanities, you can learn how this growing field of study is helping to analyze textual and archaeological data—and more importantly, how you can help.

The important factor of digital indexing is consistency, and what provides consistency? Standards. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
