This is an expanded version of an article that appeared in the Communications of the ACM, May 2001 section on digital libraries. The published version is more informal. In this article, we describe the challenges of creating digital libraries for the humanities, based on our experience with a series of heterogeneous projects ranging from Ancient Greece to 19th-century London.
