Are researchers of today equipped for the digital future?

Article dated: 21-May-09

The Director of the UKDA will be one of the panel at the British Academy on Monday 8 June 2009. This event will explore issues which the digital revolution is raising for the research community, particularly in the humanities and social sciences.

These will include the new opportunities digital tools offer researchers; the impact of the digital revolution on research and teaching (both positive and negative); the impact for public and university libraries; the kinds of investment in and support for digital technology the UK requires in order to sustain its world-leading position in research; the specific implications of the digital future for intellectual property and copyright; and whether Government policy is taking sufficient cognisance of all of these challenges.

Admission is free, and seats will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
