WAYH About The Future Of Libraries
The entire backfile of The New York Times is available online. That’s more than 13-million articles written from 1851 until today. A quick Google search on many topics will return you more results that you could read in a year. War and Peace can be downloaded in minutes…even seconds. So do we still need libraries? My next guests say we do. Here to discuss why and how libraries might be re-imagined in the future are Amy Patee, Associate Professor of Library Science at Simmons College and Susan Flannery, Director of the Cambridge Public Library.
