Work has begun on a set of projects funded by JISC and the ICT Programme to ease the transition from the system of centralized support services which ended with the termination of funding for the AHDS and the AHRC ICT Methods Network in March 2008. These are hosted at the Centre for e-Research, King's College London and comprise the following:
- continue and develop the JISC-funded ICTGuides on-line knowledge base of training and methodological resources in the use of ICT for Arts and Humanities research, together with a national register of related research projects
- continue and develop the AHRC ICT Methods Network's system of on-line support resources for virtual communities of practitioners in the use of ICT for Arts and Humanities research, at the site arts-humanities.net; ICTGuides will in due course be incorporated in this
- facilitate the establishment of a national Network of Expert Centres in digital Arts and Humanities.
