A catalogue of digital scholarship

The projects section is designed to help you to build and use digital resources. It provides detailed records of several hundred digital arts and humanities projects, including information on the digital resources created and the methods and tools used in the research.

The projects chosen to populate the database mostly derive from AHRC funded projects. Emphasis is given to UK projects, however international projects of wider interest can also be included. If you are involved in a project that should be included please do contact us.

Project description
Databasing key documents and narrative chronologies of artists' film and video distributors in the UK The project created a database – the Film and Video Distribution Database (FVDD) – of chronological information and key documents relating to artists'/independent film and video distributors in the UK from the 1960s to date, which have been collected as part of two AHRB funded research projects. The database will be accessible via its own URL and via the British Artists Film and Video Study Collection.
19th- and Early 20th-Century Annotated Editions of String Music: Bibliographical Problems, Editorial Content and Implications for Performance Practice Nineteenth and early twentieth-century annotated editions of earlier string music have generally been scorned in recent decades by performers, even those who specialise in historically-informed performance, and have received little attention from scholars. Greater emphasis has been placed on Urtexts, which seek to present the composer's approved notation as the authoritative text of the work.
Clergy of the Church of England Database (CCEd) The Clergy of the Church of England Database aimed to construct a relational database containing the careers of all clergymen of the Church of England between 1540 and 1835. The Database brings together evidence about clerical careers from all 27 dioceses of England and Wales, which are held at 28 diocesan repositories and 23 other archives and libraries.
Strandlines Strandlines Digital Community is a King’s College London initiative that explores one of London’s most famous streets, the Strand, and its past and present communities. The project brings together local residents, workers and visitors by means of storytelling. Using digital technologies and techniques from life writing – a creative field concerned with personal life stories – it seeks to foster a more active sense of community in the Strand area.
London Theatre Bibliography (LTB) This project combines two independent, but mutually supportive, projects which have complementary outputs: the need for a systematic and complete <em>edition</em> of all pre-1642 manuscript and printed records relating to the eight early Middlesex/Westminster theatres north of the Thames, and the complementary need for an aggregated <em>bibliography</em> which locates, assesses, and digests all printed transcriptions of pre-1642 documents relating to these theatres.
