RePAH: Research in Portals in the Arts and Humanities

Principal Investigator: Professor Mark Greengrass, University of Sheffield

How does the arts and humanities research community find and exploit the internet resources it needs? It is currently served by complementary services: subject gateways (Humbul/Artifact); AHDS; recently the AHRC ICT Methods Network and Arts and Humanities Research ICT Awareness and Training (ARIA). Technical developments now make it possible to refine, personalise, cross link and render interactive online information gateways. This project examines current information search/access strategies and patterns and then develops demonstrators to investigate future user requirements for advanced information services that will serve to facilitate greater take up and use of these resources. Recommendations will be made to the AHRC on future policy development.
