This paper will discuss the ways in which the Internet and related technologies can enhance and alter the activities of those in the scholarly community. A range of Internet services facilitating computer-mediated communication and retrieval of networked information will be discussed, as well as their implications for the way academics work. The paper argues that a range of tools and technologies available through the Internet provide scholars with new ways to form their own 'invisible colleges', influence how they do their research, and provide them with new ways to teach.
