The Centre for e-Research (CeRch) at King’s College London was established in 2008. The Centre aims to facilitate interdisciplinary, institutional, national and international collaboration.
The Centre’s core strengths are in:
the theory and practice of digital libraries and digital archives;
knowledge organisation and digital information management, through all stages of the digital lifecycle;
researcher and citizen practices in the digital domain;
ICT methods for digital scholarship and research, and the formalisation of research methods through the use of ICT;
e-research infrastructures and virtual research environments.
The Centre researches, publishes and teaches in its areas of expertise, contributing, with the Department of Digital Humanities, to the RAE2008 (placed 2nd overall in the Library and Information Studies panel) and to forthcoming Research Excellence Framework (REF). The Centre also runs the MA programme in Digital Asset and Media Management with the Department of Digital Humanities.
