Robert Darnton's The Library in the New Age


On June 12, Robert Darnton, distinguished historian and director of Harvard University Libraries, published in the New York Review of Books one of the most incisive analyses of the value of physical books and physical libraries in a world of information increasingly populated by digital books, digital libraries, and the Internet. This article I greatly recommend. There is also follow-up correspondence in the New York Review of Books published on July 17.
