Survey: digitised materials in the humanities

The Oxford Internet Institute (OII), in collaboration with the UK’s Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC), invites you to take part in a short (20 minute) survey. The survey focuses on the role of digitised materials in the humanities.

The survey is designed to be completed whether or not you use particular resources as it is a means to gain an understanding of the centrality of a variety of tools to your research. The findings will be useful in directing future capacity building.

If you are a humanities researcher, even if you aren’t currently using research tools, we encourage you to complete the survey. The survey will be shorter in this case, as it will skip a number of the questions based on your answers.

Regardless of how you have arrived at this page, your participation in this research is entirely voluntary, and you may withdraw from the study at any time. If you have already entered responses to the questionnaire and wish to withdraw from the study, contact us at

This survey takes most participants under 20 minutes to complete. Please be sure to continue all the way to the end to submit your data.

The statistical results will be publicly reported, but all information provided by individuals will be anonymized and not tied to any individual. If you would like to be notified of the results of this study, there will be an opportunity at the end of the survey to provide an e-mail address for this purpose.
