6 Summary

During this week you have started to consider what we mean by the term ‘digital scholarship’ and looked at some of the tools that may be of value to us as digital scholars. You have looked at a range of definitions and characteristic behaviours of digital scholarship and set out Boyer’s classification of the activities in which scholars might regularly engage. You will be using each component of Boyer’s definition to consider how they relate to the digital world and we will continue to encourage you to explore this world.

Next week you will look at some of the impacts of digital technologies on research activity.
