Gutenberg 2.0

Shaw, Jonathan. "Gutenberg 2.0" Harvard Magazine (May-June 2010), at:

The author interviewed several professors and librarians (including John Palfrey at the Harvard Law Library) at Harvard University to hear their views on libraries. Issues brought up include: librarians' role as information brokers, the importance of being able to find relevant information when faced with overwhelming data, books and budget, "just in time" libraries, digital preservation, and the future for books.
