A special forum held in conjunction with the National Centre of Biography's Life of Information symposium. The thick, descriptive data of humanities research and the strict categorization of digital databases are not natural partners. Current developments in data representation are breaking down these barriers. This forum discusses the theory and practice of flexible digital search techniques.
Entry to the forum session is open (just drop in).
