Support Services

Your first point of contact should always be your Faculty IT Officers (or equivalent). They will tell you what support is available from the Faculty, and, just as importantly, they will need to know about any demands your project might make on Faculty resources. They will also point you to further contacts and sources of information.

For information about grant applications, you should always refer to the Humanities Division Research Facilitators.

For advice and answers on technical questions, and for technical collaborators and support, there is now a common contact point for the three main providers of digital humanities services in Oxford: the OeRC, IT Services, and the Bodleian Libraries. Emailing will put you in touch with the appropriate person in one of these services. Follow the links below for more information about digital humanities support in:
