Interpretations
Digital scholarship is a relatively new domain of research with momentum.
This field of research is clearly interdisciplinary.
The research themes explore relevant and pressing issues with social interactions online and social data.
These practices and work are intimately linked to libraries.
Semantics aside, there are clearly societal and research challenges that incorporate concerns associated with the transformation of scholarship to digital domains.
