The DARIAH project Humanities at Scale (HaS) conducted a survey to investigate DH Researchers’s service needs.
The report is now published, and can be downloaded from the HAL archives. It is a result of work package 6 “Basic Services Cluster 2: Supporting the Lifecycle of Digital Humanities Basic Services Implementation of basic tools and services in the DARIAH infrastructure”.
As part of work package 6 task 6.1 investigates demands of Digital Humanities (DH) projects regarding service requirements and tools. Its aim is to evaluate, what tools and services are already in use at the present time, and which ones the target groups want to use in the future. To get this kind of information and to enable a gap analysis a survey was conducted in June 2016.
The survey was created with Lime Survey and was designed to answer the following questions:
- How do the target groups evaluate the relevance of providing basic services and tools in a Digital Humanities research infrastructure?
- What services and tools are already in use?
- What do the target groups wish to have or use in the future?
The defined target group for WP6 covers traditional humanities researchers as well as technical oriented researchers and developers in the field of Digital Humanities. Thus the survey addresses scholars and academics with a focus on Humanities Research as well as scholars and academics with a focus on Technical Development.
Work in task 6.1 is a joint effort of University of Go?ttingen – State and University Library1 (UGOE-SUB) and the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam2 (FHP).
