Arts and Humanities Data Service: Enabling Digital Resources for the Art and Humanities

This site has been archived as part of King's Digital Lab (KDL) archiving and sustainability process, following background analysis and consultation with research leads wherever possible.

Project content and data has been stored as a fully backed-up Virtual Machine and can be made available on request (depending on access controls agreed with the Principal Investigator) for a period of at least 2 years from the decommissioning date indicated below.

If you have an interest in this project and would like to support a future phase please contact us by filling in this form.

At its inception, KDL inherited just under 100 digital research projects and websites. Aware of the intellectual and cultural value of many of these projects, with the support of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at King’s College London, KDL took on its responsibility to the community to steward them in a responsible manner. When the options of setting up a Service Level Agreement for further hosting and maintenance with KDL and/or undertaking migration to IT Services at King’s or other institutions were deemed infeasible or inappropriate, the archiving process was initiated.

We would like to thank research leads, the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at King’s College London, and partner institutions, for their support in this process.

Overview

The Arts and Humanities Data Service was a UK national service funded by the JISC and AHRC to collect, preserve and promote the electronic resources which result from research and teaching in the arts and humanities.

By preserving collections made in the arts and the humanities, the AHDS encouraged research and educational use of its collections and made information about them available through online catalogues.

The identification and promotion of shared standards was critical to the AHDS's work. Preserving and exchanging digital information relies upon their widespread adoption and so did a more integrated approach to resource discovery which may have helped our users to find the resources they required irrespective of where they are located or how they are stored.

From Partition to Direct Rule: 50 Years of Northern Ireland Parliamentary Debates Online

This website offers access to the Parliamentary Debates of the devolved government of Northern Ireland from June 7 1921 to the dissolution of Parliament in March 28 1972.

These papers cast a unique and valuable light on the development of the Province. The 92,000 printed pages of Parliamentary Debates are held by few institutions and they have no comprehensive subject index. Hence they have been inaccessible and difficult to use. This project, with the support of academics, archivists and politicians, has taken the Papers and fully digitised them. The resource has been available online since October 2006.

Visitors to the site can search either the full text or specific keywords (for example Prisons, Westminster or Drunkenness), or they can browse particular debates according to the combined subject index, or they can simply view the volumes.

 
Use quotes to search for phrases, E.g. "Ulster Volunteer Force" or "Boundary Commission".

The data capture has been undertaken at The Centre for Data Digitisation and Analysis at Queen's University Belfast. The resource has been made available by the Arts and Humanities Data Service (Executive) at King's College London. The project was funded as an award winner of the November 2002 round of the Resource Enhancement scheme of the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
