Historians and the Technologies of Research

by Dominique Daniel

The American Historical Association is pubishing results from a survey of 1,266 historians about their use of technology:

"This article is the first of a two-part series analyzing historians’ use of digital technologies in their research. As digital tools proliferate in our discipline, it’s important to gauge which of them we use and why, what kind of support we receive from our institutions to do so, and what sorts of tools might most benefit historical research in coming years. The second article in the series will explore attitudes toward various forms of publication."
