Digital Impacts will discuss methodologies for measuring the impact of digitised resources and embedding them in teaching and research; it will present projects from the JISC-funded Impact and embedding programme, which provide cases studies on the impact of resources as wide ranging as institutional podcasts, multimedia dance resources, historical sources and learning resources repositories and will lanuch the newly updated Toolkit for the Impact of Digitised Scholarly Resources.

Speakers include Brian Kelly, UKOLN, Prof David Robey, Oxford eResearch Centre (OeRC), Melissa Heighton, Oxford University Computing Services, Dr Jane Winters, Head of Publications, Institute of Historical Research, representatives from the projects, and the workshop convenors, Dr Kathryn Eccles and Dr Eric T Meyer, both from the Oxford Internet Institute.

More information about the event, a draft programme and registration form are available on the Digital Impacts web site.
