The Future of Libraries
In "Preserving the Library in the Digital Age," Tufts University history professor Benjamin L. Carp confesses, "I'll always be a stack rat." His vision of the future of libraries finds a place for digitized materials and the real thing. His essay appears in the November 2009 issue of The Readex Report. Readex publishes digital historical collections such as the Archive of Americana, which includes early American imprints and historical newspapers.
