The Digital Resources for the Humanities conferences are a major forum for all those affected by the digitization of our common cultural heritage: the scholar creating or using an electronic edition; the teacher using digital resources as an aid to learning; the publisher finding new ways to reach new audiences; the librarian, curator or archivist wishing to improve both access to and conservation of the digital information that characterizes contemporary culture and scholarship; the computer or information science specialist seeking to apply new scientific and technical developments to the creation, exploitation and management of digital resources.
The Chair of the DRHA Standing Committee is Christopher Pressler, Director of Research and Learning Resources at The University of Nottingham. The Current Secretary is Alastair Dunning, Digitisation Programme Manager at the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC).
The overall organisation of DRHA conferences is the responsibility of the DRHA Standing Committee, which comprises representatives from the Sponsoring Organisations (see below).

The organisation and running of DRH conferences is governed by a Protocol:
