Book Sale Anyone?
Perhaps I should entitle this the Luddite Corner to capture the jaw dropping that I experienced as I read the following article.
The New York Times is reporting today that college libraries are dumping portions of their print collections in favor of other media, in an article entitled College Libraries Set Aside Books in a Digital Age.
The article contains the following quote from Frances Malory, President of the Association of College and Research Libraries:
"This is a new generation both with a chip...A student sends an e-mail at 2 a.m. and wonders by 8 a.m. why the professor hasn't responded." Should we aim to make our programs more accessible electronically? (els)
