  • So if having a good product is the first step, the next is figuring out how to get people to use it. This means going back to the basics and understanding why humanities scholars in general adopt technologies in their working lives and practice. Taking information-seeking as just one example, what I have found over both the course of my research and my work with Discovery is really quite simple--technologies are adopted when they have a real, tangible benefit to practice. For years there has been this myth of humanities scholars as luddites, but the truth is that they are just practical. Scholars don’t reject an electronic catalogue and go back to using the card catalogue because they don’t like technology, but because the technology fails to provide any benefit--it often isn’t faster, or more comprehensive. And if it doesn’t save someone time or work, and they can’t do anything with it that they couldn’t be done with a sheet of paper and a pen, why should they use it?
