This article provides an overview of recent developments in digitizing nineteenth-century printed and archived material, and argues that while mass digitisation offers incredible opportunities for research and scholarship, it also increases the considerable distance between nineteenth-century reading practices and our own. Digitized content implicitly privileges certain types of reading practice and use which the extant printed material does not.
