This article is a review of Jessie Daniels and Polly Thistlethwaite’s new book, Being a Scholar in the Digital Era. Both the authors work of the City of New York University system. In the book they point out how today’s scholars have to live in two worlds: the world of the traditional mode of print-based scholarship and the scholarship of the digital age. They say the major shift in scholarship in this age is the search capabilities of modern search engines.
The author mentions Bluefire Reader and ebrary.
