The American Council of Learned Societies (an organization promoting research in the humanities) issued a report in 2006 on the pressing issues confronting the study of the humanities in the age of the internet: “As more personal, social, and professional time is spent online, it will become increasingly important to have an online environment that cultivates the richness of human experience, the diversity of human languages and cultures, and the full range of human creativity. Such an environment will best emerge if its design can benefit from the strengths of the humanities and social sciences: clarity of expression, the ability to uncover meaning even in scattered or garbled information, and centuries of experience in organizing knowledge.”
