Digital editions have some distinct features that are not present in digital libraries. Therefore it is somewhat worrisome that there are far more digital libraries than digital editions. This essay argues that the reason for this is not only a pressure towards all-inclusiveness but also the fact that scholarly editions are addressing both scholars and common readers, each of them having their own expectations of what a digital edition should actually offer. The essay suggests that we should get away from the idea of access to data as the principal merit of the edition and suggests a model of criticism instead, meaning that editors should represent their work as providing critical points of view on the texts they are offering, with their actual contents thrown in.
