  11. 11. what is … digital humanities? existing tools put to new uses digitisation, annotation, presentation … text as data, data as images, maps, timelines … social media, participatory, crowdsourcing … controversial, fuzzy, buzzy Our priorities: web content, matchmaking creative technologists, upskilling academics, data management, collaboration tools, applications requirements Projects: http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/arts/research/digitalhumanities/projects/ 1 2 1) http://www.oii.ox.ac.uk/vis/?id=4fb24d5d 2) from Mark Knights Making History Course, Warwick 3) http://commonsinabox.org/ 4) https://www.facebook.com/TranscribeBentham 4 3
  12. 12. on the horizon … RDM drivers: [+] opportunity: “reproduceability”, data citation, data publication [-] compliance: the university’s own data policy, funder requirements RESEARCH DATA MGT http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rdm/ Implications for IT: early days, explorations underway for a library-hosted catalogue of datasets, a store of research data management plans, frameworks for storage and archive and advice on good practice 1) http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rdm/ 2) http://cardio.dcc.ac.uk/ 3) http://sudamih.oucs.ox.ac.uk/ 4) http://www.northumbria.ac.uk/sd/academic/ceis/re/isrc/themes/rmarea/datum/health/ 5) http://figshare.com/ 1 2 5 4 3

  14. 14. what all this means for IT colleagues We want to ensure that academics pick the best tools for the job, using ITS provision wherever that’s the best fit, so: •we will refer people on to services with well-informed requirements •we will welcome referrals from colleagues where we can help refine requirements for research and teaching purposes •we will request enhancements to existing services, based on our evidence and expertise •we will work with services to pilot and evaluate new provision •we will work with colleagues to improve the evidence base about current practice and emerging needs
