LAIRAH: Log Analysis of Internet Resources in the Arts and Humanities

Principal Investigator: Dr Claire Warwick, University College London

The LAIRAH survey will investigate the use of online digital resources in the humanities to determine whether they are sustainable and how and why they are used. No systematic studies of the use of such resources have been undertaken, and LAIRAH aims to provide comprehensive, quantitative, qualitative, and robust measures for evaluation of real-time use, utilising deep log analysis techniques on automatically recorded server data. This analysis will provide the basis for follow-up qualitative work. The findings will aid the selection of projects for future funding, and provide evaluative measures for new projects developing digital online resources for the humanities.
