The digital collections created as part of the programme are aimed at enhancing the provision of e-content for teaching, learning and research purposes primarily in UK Higher and Further Education Institutions and to respond to the specific needs of users within this sector.

This study intends to investigate the level of impact, usage and take-up that such resources have had on teaching, learning and research within relevant subject areas and the degree to which they respond to users’ needs.

Funding of between £40,000 and £50,000, inclusive of VAT and expenses, is available for this study.

The deadline for proposals is 12 noon on Monday 28 April 2008. The study is expected to begin in June 2008 and be completed by March 2009.
