The Archaeology Data Service was established to collect, describe, catalogue, preserve, and provide user support for digital resources that are created as a product of archaeological research. The ADS is primarily funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Board5 and JISC and is part of the Arts and Humanities Data Service. Since the establishment of its online catalogue in September 1998, the ADS has begun to build rich collections of quality digital data for use in learning, teaching and research. These include the first national and regional Sites and Monuments Records to be made available via the Internet, full-scale digital excavation archives and the archaeological components of rich inter-disciplinary data sets complementing data held by its sister AHDS service providers. The use of these collections is expanding rapidly. The ADS places a high priority on raising awareness of the potential use of digital data held by the ADS within the further and higher education sectors and is developing a programme of visits to FECs and HEIs, but while these visits are important, they are no substitute for the use of ADS resources within the core syllabus. The ADS recognises that there is great potential for developing electronic tutorials based on existing licensed data sets that would enhance and expand their use within the DNER for learning and teaching. Electronic tutorials would be used by ADS staff, but could also be delivered by the staff of home institutions. The overall aim of the project is to increase the use of digital data available within the DNER, specifically that held by the ADS and the AHDS, by the further and higher education archaeological community. The project aims to develop electronic tutorial packs to promote the use of ADS resources within the core syllabus being delivered by FE and HE institutions. The specific objectives are to: Produce four web-based tutorial packs covering aspects of use of monument inventories, excavation archives, electronic publications and inter-disciplinary datasets Enrich users' understanding of the analysis and use of primary archaeological electronic resources Implement the four electronic tutorial packs initially in six Higher Education Institutions Present a framework for the use of primary archaeological electronic resources in teaching and learning Enhance the ADS data collections as part of the DNER. Project start date: 2000-10-01. Project end date: 2003-10-31. (Excerpt from <a href="http://ads.ahds.ac.uk/project/patois/">this source</a>)
