For the archivist, these essays ask provocative questions and point to some interesting opportunities, both for repositories and users.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Roy Rosenzweig was an amazing scholar--this collection of his essays really covers a lot of ground in a deeply researched but very readable way. If you're interested in how digital technology and the internet are shaping the field of history, this book by a pioneer in that field is an excellent starting point. The Cohen/Rosenzweig "Digital History: A Guide to Gathering, Preserving, and Presenting the Past on the Web" (which is also available as an ebook free on the web) covers more practical, hands-on topics. BTW some of the essays in Clio Wired are available free if your library has access to JStor.

Many professional and hobby-related things have been written posing the question of how historians will deal with research and presentation in this world where traditional sources of information and methods of delivering research change so much and so quickly. Rosenzweig examines "new media" and what it means for historians, professional or amateur.
First he looks at the change in quantity and quality of information available through new media. Is the large amount an asset, or does it obscure the quality of what is there? What about a forum for people who wish to post their own understanding of history, (Wikipedia) allowing any to access it whether the reader is capable of properly evaluating the evidence or conclusions?
But then, does this new media help historians reach a new audience? is it a great tool for teaching? Does it give researchers access to traditional scholarship without the need to travel to many libraries or wait on articles to come through inter-library loan?
Will this new world change the "business model" (my term) for history? The ethics? Does it lead to a future where historians can thrive, or will this species become extinct and be replaced by a new breed of scolar/teacher/debater?
Well written. easy to read yet thought provoking. . .
