Research interests

The Department is interested in carrying out research which is of both Maltese and international relevance.

A number of projects have been undertaken, including the ‘Naval Battles Pamphlet’ database. This is an ongoing project aimed at the digitisation and full-text uploading of rare pamphlets describing naval engagements by the Order of St John or by Maltese corsairs during the 16th to the 18th centuries.

Research pertaining to all aspects of information management, whether current or retrospective in nature is actively encouraged and a number of post-graduate dissertations submitted by our students have focused on a wide variety of areas.
