Humanities Advanced Technology & Information Institute, University of Glasgow
Data Center Description
The Humanities Advanced Technology and Information Institute (HATII) was formed in 1997 to build on Glasgow University's expertise in Information Communication and Technology (ICT) in the arts and humanities and cultural heritage sector. The Institute initially brought together the Faculty of Art's existing Resource Development Officers (in History, Modern Languages, English and Music) and Art's IT Support team. Under the direction of Seamus Ross HATII rapidly expanded its research and teaching programme, hiring new academic staff and forming strategic partnerships with cognate areas within the University.
In 2003 HATII launched its own Joint Honours Degree in Arts and Media Informatics and in 2005 its first masters course in Information Management and Preservation. In 2008 it launched a masters programme in Computer Forensics and e-Discovery and for the 2009-10 academic year a new masters programme in Museum theory and Practice.
Today we are internationally recognised for our research excellence in digital preservation, archive and record management, theoretical approaches to information and cultural heritage informatics.
