The AHRC ICT Methods Network, a UK initiative for the exchange and dissemination of expertise in the use of ICT for arts and humanities research, has launched an online forum on the 'digital' aspects of historical research:
'Tools and Methods for the Digital Historian'
is the first of a set of integrated online fora related to Methods Network activities and resources and is a forum for open discussion of all issues relating to digital history. In particular we invite comments on a working paper by Neil Grindley (Methods Network) entitled 'Tools and Methods for Historical Research' which we hope will become the basis of a community resource. We are keen on getting more input and would very much like to include your feedback in future versions of the paper.
The paper contains sections on: Database Structures; Data Mining; Quantitative Methods; Visualization; and Geographical Information Systems. It can be downloaded from our website at:
For all questions regarding 'Digital Historian' and Methods Network community building in general please contact our Senior Research Project Coordinator Torsten Reimer (Torsten.Reimer@kcl.ac.uk).
