Project summary:
JISC is funding British History Online to investigate the use of digital online resources in Higher Education, with a particular focus on British History Online itself. The funding comes from JISC's 'Impact and Embedding' programme.

This project has two phases. The first was a rapid analysis of the current usage of digital historical resources within UK Higher Education. This was carried out via a battery of interviews, focus groups and surveys, at the same time as a detailed quantitative study of British History Online's rich collection of site-specific data.
