Bringing Text Alive: The Future of Scholarship, Pedagogy, and Electronic 
Publication

Announces that registration is now available at
http://sitemaker.umich.edu/tcp.conference.

This exciting conference will be addressing many issues relating to the 
future of electronic resources in the humanities.  With the help of the 
Delmas Foundation, Newsbank-Readex, ProQuest Information and Learning, 
and Thomson-Gale, the Text Creation Partnership (TCP) project at the 
University of Michigan has put together an exciting program of over 30 
speakers in Ann Arbor on September 15 & 16, 2006.

The conference will cover a wide array of issues relating to both 
scholars and librarians including:

1.  New paradigms in scholarship:
How do scholars create new electronic environments in which to do their 
research and teaching?
Do e-texts necessitate the creation of virtual research/learning 
environments?
How do such environments change "traditional" practices?
How should scholars harness these changes to best fulfill their needs?

2.  Collaboration between libraries and academic departments:
What opportunities are available with electronic technology?
What kinds of collaborations exist currently?
How have these enhanced research and pedagogical opportunities?

3. Practical changes in scholarship and teaching:
What have other scholars done in their classes and scholarship?
How is it easier to teach undergraduates with e-resources?  Is it easier 
to do research with e-resources?

Please join us for this exciting discussion.  More information about the 
conference is available at http://www.lib.umich.edu/tcp/conference and
