The Centre for Digital Humanities Research, established in January 2010, is part of the Research School of the Humanities and the Arts.

The centre expands and builds upon the work of CRIO (the Consortium for Research and Information Outreach) to include a broader range of digital media activities. CRIO was a pioneer in the innovative use of digital media from 2001 to 2009. The team attracted significant ARC funding; supported doctoral students; established new Masters courses; and contributed to the development of digital media research methods in ethnographic fieldwork, collections-based research and the mapping of cultural data.

Through its work on a range of media projects the Centre for Digital Humanities Research aims to contribute further to the development of digital humanities and e-research at the Australian National University, as well as nationally and internationally. We welcome researchers and students wanting guidance in creating and managing digital projects and collections.
