Background: Projects and Centres Database

At the outset of the AHRC ICT Programme, a main activity was mapping current usage of arts and humanities computing in the UK, and the needs of those employing it. The first phase of this mapping activity was an intensive review of ICT within the centres funded under the AHRCís Research Centres Scheme. Conducted jointly with the AHDS, all 19 centres were visited between September 2004 and March 2005, and key personnel were interviewed. The results of the survey are contained in a report, 'AHRC Research Centres and the Use of ICT', by Stuart Dunn (AHRC) and Alastair Dunning (AHDS). The second phase was the creation of a Projects and Centres Database, which has become a core component of ICT Guides.

The full report, AHRC Research Centres and the Use of ICT', by Stuart Dunn and Alastair Dunning is available to download.
