The Digitised Resources: A Usage and Impact Study project combines quantitative and qualitative indicators to measure the impact of online scholarly resources. The toolkit being developed will include a number of elements which will aid other researchers and funding bodies to assess the impact of digitisation projects.

This workshop presented the results of this project in the context of general panel discussions about the role of digitisation in the practices of humanities researchers now and in the future.
