Alexander Huber

I'm a digital librarian and eighteenth-centurist. I work in the digital library programme of the Bodleian Libraries at the University of Oxford. My main areas of interest are digital library initiatives, digital humanities and humanities computing, metadata frameworks for encoding digital objects, digitization of primary sources and secondary materials, textual editing and TEI-based scholarly editions.

I conduct research in the field of eighteenth-century poetry, especially early romanticism. I'm the co-founder (with Reimer Eck, Associate Director of the Göttingen State and University Library) and editor of the Thomas Gray Archive, a long-term research project devoted to the mid-eighteenth-century poet, letter-writer, and scholar Thomas Gray (1716-1771). The Archive offers access to Gray's complete poetry, extensive collaborative commentary, selected prose works, a concordance to Gray's poetry, a digital library of primary sources and audio-visual materials, and a finding aid to Thomas Gray manuscripts. There is also an increasing number of secondary resources available, including a criticism page, biography, chronology, bibliography, glossary, and picture gallery.
