DARIAH-IT is the Italian National Node of DARIAH-ERIC, representing the Italian community of both Digital and traditional Humanists working with digital methods. DARIAH-IT is working to support the development of strategies to bring accessibility, stability and integration to the resources at a national level, and to stimulate methodological innovation in research of Humanities scholars.
DARIAH-IT is managed by a National Coordination Office located in Florence, organizing activities, and supporting the work of the National Coordinator and the National Representative. DARIAH-IT is creator and maintainer of the Italian Resources Registry, which is both a tool to find valuable digital resources for research in the humanities and the official catalogue of the Italian national in-kind contributions to DARIAH-ERIC.
DARIAH is a pan-european infrastructure for arts and humanities scholars working with computational methods. It supports digital research as well as the teaching of digital research methods.
DARIAH is a network. It connects several hundreds of scholars and dozens of research facilities in currently 17 european countries, the DARIAH member countries. In addition DARIAH has several cooperating partner institutions in countries not being a member of DARIAH, and strong ties to many research projects across Europe. People in DARIAH provide digital tools and share data as well as know-how. They organize learning opportunities for digital research methods, like workshops and summer schools, and offer training materials for Digital Humanities.
The DARIAH community also works together in working groups, with subjects ranging from the assessment of digital tools to the development of standards and the long term accessibility of research materials. Their activities may vary but they all share one common goal: Providing services to scholars in the arts and humanities and therefore helping to do research at its best.
DARIAH is open to everyone. Whether you would like to participate in one of DARIAH’s working groups, work towards your country becoming a DARIAH partner, like to see your institution cooperate with DARIAH, or you are just looking for someone to share know-how and to support your research project, get in touch with us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Humanities at Scale can be understood as an add set up to improve DARIAH in fostering new and sustaining existing knowledge in digitally enabled research in the arts and humanities. In order to achieve these goals HaS focuses on three main activities: growing the DARIAH community, developing core services and informing research communities.
