In this chapter I look in some detail at two contemporary texts by ‘scholars of the digital’ writing about scholarship: Christine Borgman’s book ‘Scholarship in the digital age. Information, infrastructure and the Internet’ (Borgman 2007), and Martin Weller’s ‘The Digital Scholar: how technology is transforming scholarly practice’ (Weller 2012). The comparison between them demonstrates not only the impact that new digital technologies are having on the rhetoric and practice of scholars, but also the extent to which conventional academic scholarly literacy practices have remained stable in the face of this.
