    Thematic research collections
    A new digital genre—neither books nor libraries
    Collocated collections of thematically related material
    Incomplete (open-ended)
    Good ones possess contextual mass
    Focus shifts from simple content delivery to activities (related to scholarly primitives)
    “What can I do with it?” as important as “What’s in it?”
    Each site makes an improvement in this space
