The work is based on a questionnaire survey conducted in 2019 with 707 readers of Greater Tunis. The main results of this study show that readers belonging to the soft sciences in general are avid readers, whether in the traditional paper-based environment or in the digital environment. An evolving trend towards digital book reading by readers in SHS. Nevertheless, less collaborative work than those belonging to the exact and applied sciences. This turning point in the soft sciences finds its foundation in the expression of the digital humanities offering, among other things, open access to various literary, cultural and historical digital corpuses and collections. With digital, everything is changing not only in terms of the migration of knowledge to digital media, but also the creation and production of this knowledge has migrated to digital. A new field of research is thus opening up in the human and social sciences, that of digital literature and art.
