This chapter speculates on what electronic scholarship of the twenty-first century might look like. The production of high-quality electronic texts and resources is very labour intensive. It is imperative to find ways of making these resources as broadly multipurpose and reusable as possible. This must be done in the context of different theoretical perspectives in scholarship and in the context of a broadening range of users, from undergraduates to senior professors, in high schools and in the community at large for distance learning and for continuing education. Meanwhile, the Internet provides the opportunity for the tools and techniques developed in computing in the humanities to be put at the centre of the scholarly arena.
