Digital Research in the Arts and Humanities: Databases - standalone online learning course (Faculty of Arts)
Duration Accessible at any time during academic year
Team Researcher Academy

This face to face course is run by the Researcher Academy as part of the Arts Faculty Training Programme

The Researcher Academy courses are very popular and the majority are run in both semesters to give you the opportunity to attend at a time of the year that suits you. 

Target audience: Research students and research staff in the Faculty of Arts.

Process: Lecture and practical workshop.


Digital Research in the Arts and Humanities is a series of lectures and workshops on digital research methodologies.

Researchers in most disciplines within the arts, humanities and social sciences encounter data of some form in the course of their research. Getting the most out of this data depends on choosing the right tools for the job and knowing how to use them. This workshop will provide participants with a practical introduction to interrogating and designing databases for research.

No technical skill required; all those with an interest are encouraged to attend!

Booking Guidelines

Latecomer policy
Researchers should plan to arrive prior to the advertised course start time. Except for exceptional reasons, there will be no admittance to a Researcher Academy or Faculty Training Programme (FTP) course 15 minutes after the advertised course start time.

Importance of booking commitment
 When booking on to a Researcher Academy short course you are entering into a commitment to attend. If you find that you are no longer available to attend you MUST cancel your place (on the system if more than three days before the course) or if at short notice by emailing This will ensure that your place can be offered to another researcher on the waiting list. Failure to cancel a place results in other researchers missing out on places through the waiting list process.

It is unacceptable for researchers to just not attend when booked onto a course. The Researcher Academy maintains records of those who repeatedly do not attend courses they have booked. This may affect future eligibility to book onto further Researcher Academy courses and will affect considerations for Researcher Academy funded opportunities.
