HCMC has moved

We have moved from the Clearihue building to room A316 in the Mearns Centre in the McPherson Library.

Let us work with you

Do you have an idea or question about the development of web applications, websites, on-line databases, application programs or manipulation of audio, video, images, maps or other media? The Humanities Computing and Media Centre at UVic (HCMC) has an international reputation developing projects in collaboration with researchers and instructors in UVic's faculty of humanities. We have particular expertise in the fields of digital humanities and language learning. We can put that to work for you.

We can help whether your interest is research (e.g. literary or linguistic analysis, electronic editions, research websites), teaching (using multimedia labs, creating online exercises, instructional databases), editing (e.g. managing a conference, editing a journal, maintaining a department website), as described in the services and resources section. We have an established process to help you go from your ideas to a completed project.

If you have a question (large or small) in any of those areas, or can't find what you're looking for on our site, please get in touch with us. We welcome drop-in enquires in person, by email or phone. We will either address your situation immediately, schedule a time when we can address it, or guide you through the formal project proposal process.
