- Title begins: ". . . Theological Libraries and the Hermeneutics of Digital Textuality: Panel Discussion: Part One."
- What I'd like to present to you today is a brief discussion on understanding these seminary historiographies through the digital preservation of certain library materials both circulating books and archival materials, which I like to call library marginaliaâ€”and how using very basic free online tools (e.g., the Google platform) can promote and develop a broader and more developed educational and scholarly product for your institutions, denominational bodies, and the larger academic communities. I will go through a few products of early Web 2.0 (which are common and many of you know about), as well as some newer, later Web 2.0/3.0 technologies, such as Google Wave. I will focus most on the Lutheran portions of the collections, as they are the aspects I've dealt with most intimately. But let me begin with a brief discussion of "digital textuality" itself.
