Aims and Objectives

To develop productive links between online resources in the network which will maximise the benefits for future researchers, allowing them to explore synergies between the different areas and expand their study.

To develop strategies to help ensure the long-term sustainability (future maintenance and development) of the online resources and to devise methods for their implementation.

To explore how the database elements of these projects can address issues of historiography and help develop new approaches to the histories of these areas.

To explore how the projects can work with external organisations in order to maximise their collective visibility (nationally and internationally) and target wider audiences for their resources.

To devise a strategy for the long-term continuation and development of the research network.
