Reminder: Survey of digital/software requirements for the AHRC research community

Posted by j.laird on 13 July 2021 - 2:00pm

AHRC logoTake part in our digital/software requirements survey of the AHRC research community which closes at the end of July. We've had over 90 responses to date - have your voice heard!

We are working with the AHRC to improve the understanding of the digital practices people undertake or wish they could undertake in the arts, humanities, GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives and libraries) and creative sector; all of those areas that are covered or within the remit of AHRC funded activities. Participants should be connected with a UK based institution.

This knowledge will aid AHRC and SSI to tailor our approaches to those working in the field and help direct AHRC digital infrastructure funding. 

The survey takes 15 minutes and asks about your views on digital-tools/software, your experience of developing digital-tools/softwares, and your practices and preferences for recruiting help with digital tool/software development. We have over 90 responses to date and are gaining a better understanding of what software is used for, why people choose particular pieces of software and how better software could improve the work being undertaken.

We are actively seeking views from people who do not develop digital tools/software. We are seeking input from all roles, including senior decision makers, researchers, curators, librarians and software developers in the AHRC remit. Please contribute your voice and experiences and encourage your team members and network also. 

Take the survey before the end of July 2021, after which there will be a prize draw for four £50 shopping vouchers.
