about this article

“…there are still many tricks that electronic technology is quite incapable of performing; still many structural, practical, and interpretative problems embedded in the new systems; still many radical and continuing limitations on the supposed electronic management of knowledge.” (Donaldson 2)

“If ‘digital natives’ are the next audience for our scholarly resources, shouldn’t we be thinking about new ways to organize, store, and deliver our content?” (Wittenberg)
