Description

The DigiSpec Project was funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council in 2022 under its “Scoping Future Data Services for the Arts and Humanities” programme.

As part of the evidence base for its report, the project collected twenty short Case Reports from experts in the field of born-digital data services. Each of these describes the current and future activities and requirements of a significant UK project or service.

These Case Reports are published in this collection. The DigiSpec Project also commissioned three longer Case Studies, which are being published separately-
