Dear Humanists,

if money was suddenly available how much would 
you be able to spend on printed Digital Humanities books?
Which books would you buy?

Your help is much appreciated.

        Subject: Survey: Virtual Research Environment Collaborative Landscape Study

With apologies for cross-postings.

We invite you to participate in the VRE Collaborative Landscape Study
project that is one of several studies commissioned by the UK Joint
Information Systems Committee (JISC) to research on-line research
collaboration in Virtual Research Environments (VREs). The focus of our
study is to scope developments in VREs around the world and set them in
relation to the activities in the UK.

The study aims to stimulate debate about the benefits of research
collaboration facilitated by Virtual Research Environments so as to
assist the JISC to provide services and strategies to support it.

The project is being undertaken by the Centre for e-Research at King’s
College London and the Oxford e-Research Centre at the University of Oxford.

What is a VRE?

        "...a Virtual Research Environment (VRE) is an an online framework
of collaborative tools and resources that allow researchers to share and
re-use data, combine services, and undertake tasks to promote new
collaborative research practices...."

If you are a user, developer, or provide technical support for VREs,
your input would be most welcome .
