My friend Mark Ward has proposed that we enter into a discussion of electronic resources. You can see his initial post at βλογάπη.
In our personal discussions, Mark tends to favor electronic resources, and I tend to favor print resources.
This is evident in the amount we’ve chosen to invest in electronic resources. Mark estimates that he’s spend around $3,602 on electronic resources. The only electronic resources I’ve purchased are BibleWorks (version 4, 6, & 7; with the Wallace add-on), the ESV for Libronix, and the Theological Journal Library for Libronix.
This is not to say I’m entirely opposed to electronic resources. I’ve accumulated quite a number of electronic resources for free. There are a number of reasons, however, that I’ve avoided purchasing electronic resources.
I’ll speak of those reasons in future posts, but for now I simply note some of the electronic resources that I’ve accumulated. In addition to collecting a several of the free modules available for BibleWorks, I’ve collected a number of books and articles from around the internet. Below are the electronic books and articles currently listed in my Zotero library.
