Information Based Productivity.
Bennett, Scott
A digital project undertaken last year at Yale (Connecticut) offers an opportunity to explore productivity matters. The project aimed at improving the quality of library support and of student learning in one of the most heavily enrolled undergraduate courses at Yale, "Introduction to the History of Art, from Prehistory to the Renaissance." The Scully Project was Yale's first effort to demonstrate what it could mean to move from film- based to digitally-based systems to support teaching in art history. Student comments on the Scully Project emphasized the convenience of the Web site employed, which contributed significantly to visual memory training. This paper describes the Scully Project and discusses productivity gains subject to administrative control; productivity gains subject to reader control; and productivity as an urgent concern of higher education. The cost model for the Scully Project is appended. (AEF)
