Humanists Revisited: A Longitudinal Look at the Adoption of Information Technology.
Wiberley, Stephen E., Jr.; Jones, William G.
College & Research Libraries, v55 n6 p499-509 Nov 1994
Reports on a longitudinal study of the adoption of technology by 11 humanists. The study corroborates the tendency of humanists to adopt technology more slowly and provides insight into why. The distinctiveness of the primary evidence used by humanists--i.e., the documents and artifacts created by others--is emphasized. (32 references) (KRN)
