In the sciences, the merits and ramifications of open accessthe electronic publishing model that gives readers free, irrevocable, worldwide, and perpetual access to researchhave been vigorously debated. Open access is now increasingly proposed as a valid means of both disseminating knowledge and career advancement. In Digitize This Book! Gary Hall presents a timely and ambitious polemic on the potential that open access publishing has to transform both papercentric humanities scholarship and the institution of the university itself.
