In the best of the Digital Humanities tradition, an online interactive search environment has been created that offers detailed information on DH courses throughout Europe. This registry was presented at the recent DARIAH VCC meeting in Rome and is an example of an in kind contribution to DARIAH by its neighboring members Germany and the Netherlands. Together they took the lead and designed a search environment that combines a map of Europe with a database containing all relevant information on DH humanities courses. Students who are interested in pursuing a career in Digital Humanities, and lecturers who are looking for examples of good practices can search the database on the basis of topographical location, credits or degrees that are awarded, and keywords from the taxonomy on DH that was developed earlier by DARIAH Germany. As the Dutch/Flemish and Germans took the initiative, most of the data in the registru comes from these countries, but during the meeting in Rome the baton was passed to France and Austria.
