Research IT has extensive experience working with humanities scholars and technical staff who support humanities research through its leadership of initiatives such as Project Bamboo, the DiRT directory, and NEH-funded Berkeley Prosopography Services project.
Research IT partners with the Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS) to support computational research over large data sets across Berkeley's academic domains.
Research IT partners with museums in the Berkeley Natural History Museum consortium to develop and manage museum collection management systems and to develop collections-based software for research projects.
Research IT has partnered with the California Digital Library to implement the University of California Libraries Digital Collections (UCLDC) project. See the UCLDC project page on this site for more about how Research IT's expertise in the Nuxeo content management platform is contributing to this systemwide effort.
Research IT develops and participates in workshops and events at the D-Lab.
D-Lab helps Berkeley faculty, staff, and graduate students move forward with world-class research in data intensive social science by providing cross-disciplinary resources for in-depth consulting and advising, access to staff support, and training and provisioning for software and other infrastructure needs.
Research IT and LBNL are partnering to provide high-performance computing (HPC) services to campus. Gary Jung, Manager of High Performance Computing Services at LBNL, and a team of seasoned HPC professionals from his staff, are embedded part-time on the Berkeley campus to manage the campus's Institutional/Condo HPC Cluster, and to provide cluster computing consultation to researchers who use or are preparing to use it to address their computational research needs.
The University of California, Berkeley is home to many extremely valuable collections of non-book artifacts and objects housed in campus museums, libraries, and archives. Managing, conserving, and providing access to these collections is an important contribution to the fulfillment of the University's research, teaching, and public service missions. These collections, including those that increasingly feature digitized materials, document the cultural, biological and physical diversity of California and many other regions and cultures of the world.
