From tools and services to e-Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities

  • Tobias Blanke
Conference paper


This paper presents tools and services, humanities researchers use to work with digital resources. It will then analyse how these tools and services can be brought together in one integrated research infrastructure empowered by e-Science tools and methodologies e-Science stands the development and deployment of a networked infrastructure and culture through which resources can be shared in secure environments. This networked infrastructure allows a culture of collaboration, in which new forms of collaboration can emerge, and new and advanced methodologies can be explored.
