Paper by Chris Jones, Maria Zenios and Jill Griffiths which looks at the differences between disciplines in their uptake of digital technologies in a UK post-secondary setting. The paper is part of the proceeedings of the recent Networked Learning Conference 2004 held at Lancaster University.

This is important for those of us involved in institution-wide (or multi-institution-wide, as it were) initiatives to remember. In my own practice, it was actually looking at DSpace and a number of the other repository-like packages that work on the metaphor of discipline-specific ‘collections’ that made me include the ability of the repository software to also serve individual disciplines as one requirement in our ongoing BCcampus LOR project. – SWL
