Digital Scholarship

Digital scholarship is the study of various fields and disciplines by using electronics.  It uses digital research, publication, and energy to achieve the goals of the researcher.  Digital scholarship helps to bring together academics from different fields through the use of technology to conduct their study in a more efficient way.  The field itself can include anything from primary documents to online journals or blogs.  Digital scholarship has yet to receive legitimacy from many of the traditional fields of scholarship, but technology becomes increasingly more advanced and more useful to the new age of scholars.  As things become easier to access via the Internet, digital scholarship will become an important part of a person’s field of study.
