The Schonfeld and Housewright (2008) report is published by Ithaka, analogous with ‘accelerating the productive uses of information technologies’, which may ring alarm bells with ‘electrophobes’ and those agnostic to the notion of an increasingly electronic environment. However such readers need not look away now; this is not a ‘sales pitch’ eulogising the magic Information and Communications Technology pill. On the contrary this report delivers practical information and advice of relevance and importance to all academic librarians and HE policymakers. I have attached a short review of this report for any interested.
