e-Research is the use of IT, communications and information management (IM) technologies to do better research and to do research collaboration better. e-Research enables researchers to draw on perspectives and resources from a range of participants, in order to develop new insights and new solutions to complex problems. It involves the use of technology to draw people together, where technology is the facilitator to researcher collaboration. The e-Research vision can be illustrated by analogy: Over a period of around 10 years in the recent past, e‑Learning technologies transformed the way eduction is conducted, from blackboards to video projectors, computer animations and lectures on-line; from print-based distance education to the web, email, webinars, and broadband into the home. What is e-Research?

Activities: Promoting Digital Scholarship symposium September 15, 2008 Washington, DC Description Advanced research takes place in an evolving, technologically-mediated environment of data, computationally intensive capabilities and functions, and new forms of expression. As part of its ongoing programs in digital scholarship and the cyberinfrastructure to support teaching, learning and research, the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) in cooperation with the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) organized a one-day, invitation-only symposium in which we invited a group of some 30 leading scholars to articulate the research challenges that will use the new media to advance the analysis and interpretations of text, images and other sources of interest to the humanities and social sciences and in so doing, pose interesting problems for ongoing computational research.
