The progress that might lead to the development of an academic workstation is considered. The design of such a workstation must begin with a consideration of the tasks which the academic performs, and must aim to suport all such tasks, across the range of teaching, research and administration. Examples of currently available support are discussed, and it is concluded that not only are certain aspects of the technology insufficient, but also various psychological aspects need to be addressed.
