Researching in Digitized Libraries

I recently stumbled upon this blog that focuses on researching the middle east. It brings attention to a number of really interesting archives and libraries around the world.

As someone who is interested in digital librarianship/archives I really enjoyed this article on researching in digitized libraries and how digitization has transformed manuscript research. It was interesting to hear about the benefits of digitization from a users perspective. The article discusses how digitization is blurring the line line between libraries and archives.

Here is the link to the article: http://hazine.info/2013/11/08/digitized_manuscript_libraries/
