CDDA’s main activities The Centre for Data Digitisation and Analysis is one of the leading Digital Humanities units within the UK and Ireland. Founded in 1999, CDDA has consistently pioneered linkages between information technologies and humanities research. Founded before the Internet became mainstream, the unit was amongst the first of its kind, and, due to its innovation and dynamism, has grown in skills and resource since then.
As the technical and professional landscapes of the humanities and social sciences have shifted over the past 25 years, so too have the expertise and objectives of the Centre.
CDDA now has five key aims.
- First, to continue to be a leading, not-for-profit digitisation organisation.
- Second, to develop large and complex digital resources for the benefit of researchers, academics and the wider community.
- Third, to continue to pioneer the development of new methodologies which can adequately manage and interrogate e-resources in novel ways resulting in new understandings and scholarship.
- Fourth, to develop scholarly outputs such as traditional monographs and journal articles, digital resources and community information systems based on the e-resources the Centre has developed.
- Finally, engage with communities and individuals to develop a greater understanding of our Shared Heritage in new and innovative ways.
