Internet/World Wide Web

Abstract

Perhaps the single biggest change in scholarship in the past decade is the widespread availability of access to the World Wide Web, or the Internet as we commonly call it. It is virtually impossible to do our work now without the Web: library resources are widely available, e-mail is the preferred mode of communication among us, up-to-the-minute information is on tap, and we are expected to have it readily available. There is a great downside to all this in that it widens the gap between those who have access and those who don’t, an issue many people in religious studies have taken seriously in order to remedy it (see Computers).
