The Digital Orientalist: A Manifesto

A first essay on what The Digital Orientalist is about just came out in MELA Notes. Read it it here, full issue can be accessed here. This article is written for librarians, but can equally inform interested scholars and students. The main argument I set forth is that the move from print to digital is not just pushed by publishers, but actually spurred on by everyday usage of students and scholars, and that this usage drastically transform the way scholarship is done. Individuals become more self-reliant and collectively higher standards are set. For more read the essay, which is only eight pages long.
