Subject: Opinions Wanted--Digital Resources in Humanities and Social
A UC Berkeley based research project is seeking the input of humanists
and social scientists about their instructional uses (or non-use) of
technology in college and university settings. This research is funded
by the A.W. Mellon and the Hewlett Foundations.
We cordially invite faculty and graduate students to take our online
survey, which is designed to understand user preferences about the use
or non-use of technology in humanities and social science
undergraduate/baccalaureate teaching contexts. The study is focused on
a broad range of rich media digital resources and tools (e.g., text,
images, video, maps, GIS, etc.) that can come from a wide range of
sources, including faculty personal collections.
The survey can be found at:
By answering and returning this survey you will help ensure that this

This research project is conducted by UC Berkeley's Center for Studies
in Higher Education (CSHE). You may find more information about the
