The Digital Humanities Observatory (DHO) is a central component within the Humanities Serving Irish Society (HSIS) initiative. The DHO was established under auspices of the Royal Irish Academy to manage and co-ordinate the increasingly complex e-resources created in the arts and humanities. It will enable research and researchers in Ireland to keep abreast of international developments in the creation, use, and preservation of digital resources
CDDA is a research unit with interests in temporal Geographical Information Systems, the development of electronic research resources, e-Science and Grid technologies. It provides a comprehensive digitisation service to create key e-resources including capture of material, quality assurance, data post-processing and data delivery to user requirements. An image scanning service is also offered. It has a range of specialised scanning equipment (including flatbed, book page and microfilm scanners) and associated software and an experienced staff. The Centre is research active, both in terms of the development of new digitisation methodologies, and in using the computerised resources we create in traditional scholarship.
CREW, the Centre of Research into the English Literature and Language of Wales, is the international leader in this field of literary and cultural study. Digital research and digitisation of the literary and cultural heritage of Wales forms a core strand of activity and CREW works in partnership with the National Library of Wales supporting its pioneering digitisation programme.
Llyfrgell Genedlaethol Cymru, or the National Library of Wales, is one of Wales’s leading cultural institutions, and its principal source of recorded knowledge. It is a body of international standing, and contributes to a worldwide network of knowledge providers. The Library set up a programme to digitise its collection in 2001 by establishing a dedicated digitisation team. Since then this team has been responsible for digitising a wide range of materials from the Library’s extensive collection and have contributed to many digitisation projects over the years. The Library’s knowledge and expertise in the field is substantial.
