HEURIST is a flexible Open Source data management system which allows any confident researcher or data manager to design, create, manage, analyse and publish richly-structured database(s) within hours, through a simple web interface, without need of programmers or consultants. It is aimed at a broad range of Humanities data, characterised by rich text, multimedia, relationships, categorisation, uncertain data, spatial and temporal information, and the need to work collaboratively while maintaining access control. It allows incremental changes in database structure - existing data are not affected - allowing projects to start small and simple and evolve as the research develops.
The Digitial Sigillography Resource (Digisig) enables scholars and members of the public to search sigillographic datasets provided by researchers, archives and museums. Digisig fosters the study of seals, particular from Medieval Europe, by radically enhancing access to this important cultural legacy. Digisig aims to make seals and their associated scholarship discoverable.
Led by an interdisciplinary consortium, the Garzoni project undertakes the study of apprenticeship, work and society in early modern Venice by focusing on a specific archival source, namely the `Accordi dei Garzoni' from the Venetian State Archives. The project revolves around two main phases with, in the first instance, the design and the development of tools to extract and render information contained in the documents (according to Semantic Web standards) and, as a second step, the examination of such information.
Art History Teaching Resources (AHTR) is a peer-populated platform for art history teachers. AHTR is home to a constantly evolving and collectively authored online repository of art history teaching content including, but not limited to, lesson plans, video introductions to museums, book reviews, image clusters, and classroom and museum activities. The site promotes discussion and reflection around new ways of teaching and learning in the art history classroom through a peer-populated blog, and fosters a collaborative virtual community for art history instructors at all career stages.
The research website janbrueghel.net serves three distinct functions. First, it is a gathering place for information about the Baroque painter Jan Brueghel the Elder. Second, it is a place where a range of people with an interest in this artist, from university-based scholars to museum curators to art dealers and also the owners of paintings, can pool their ideas and untangle the problems raised by Brueghel’s works. Finally, it is a site where new knowledge about the artist can be generated, particularly by studying his workshop practice using the Image Investigation Tool.

I'm currently mapping sites of art activism (mostly feminist oriented) in '70s and '80s Los Angeles. I'm looking for people who are interested in collaborating in any location and any social movement
The goal of Hamilton's Cinema and New Media Studies Program is to blend study in film history and theory while providing students opportunities to pursue their own artistic visions through the uses of new technology.
To date, there is no open-access central resource for the study of 19th-century history and culture. Each such anthology is proprietary, often with password-protected web sites that accompany the hard-copy books. What is required is a website that provides this information in a free, expansive, searchable, reliable, peer-reviewed, easy-to-use format. I am creating a central resource for high school and university teachers seeking a comprehensive overview of the period 1789-1910.
