The SHARD Project: evidence based guidelines for the preservation of historical research data

By Arabito Stefania Raggett Malcolm Sleeman Patricia


SHARD was a JISC funded project (2011-2012) uniting the skills of the University of London Computer Centre (ULCC), the Institute of Historical Research (IHR) and HistorySpot. It used a qualitative methodology to analyse the data management practices and needs of historical researchers, and developed free online training materials for the preservation of research data ( In addition the SHARD team worked with parallel projects in the JISC programme, at London School of Economics (LSE) and Cambridge University, to create a series of FAQs, and the leaflet, “Sending Your Research Material Into The Future”, reproduced in this poster

Topics: data management practices, preservation of research data
