Kahn, Russell L.
Journal of Business and Technical Communication, v14 n3 p328-47 Jul 2000
Looks at how two university archive offices changed their informal work relationships and patterns in response to a major technological innovation in their field. Applies the models suggested by social action theory to help explain outcomes. Examines whether the differing organizational responses to new core technology were related to each office's ability to survive. (SG)
