The OED is one of a range of reference resources now available to students and researchers in universities.
Since 2000, when the OED went online, the results of the dictionary’s major
revision programme have been published online in regular (three-monthly)
The associated search software offers extensive scope for project-based research on the English language in many disciplines: English language and literature, of course, but also much more widely.
More recently, the OED online has developed a learning resources site associated with the dictionary, which offers suggestions for different types of investigation and research. And the OED is keen to hear from researchers who are interested in contributing to this by sharing their search strategies and findings with others.
The ALLC-ACH conference provides an excellent opportunity to continue this dialogue.

The effort to establish ADHO began in Tuebingen, at the ALLC/ACH conference in 2002: a Steering Committee was appointed at the ALLC/ACH meeting in 2004, in Gothenburg, Sweden. At the 2005 meeting in Victoria, the executive committees of the ACH and ALLC approved the governance and conference protocols and nominated their first representatives to the ‘official’ ADHO Steering Committee and various ADHO standing committees. The 2006 conference was the first Digital Humanities conference.
