eResearch encompasses all of the information technology infrastructure and software that supports a research community. This includes the computing platforms, the software platforms that connect equipment, data, and other computing resources with people, along with collections management, platforms to run experiments, and advanced collaboration tools. eResearch communities thrive on deep engagement with researchers, supporting the formation and operation of effective digitally supported research communities.
