Library Art, Science, and Technologies

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

A December 27, 2010 post to this blog noted: “Minnesota Public Radio recently had a segment on “changing technology and the future of libraries” – something of interest to librarians and their users everywhere, including New Haven, where the new city librarian is seeking community views, as indicated in a December 20 news article on this LiteracyEveryday site. Another discussion of libraries comes from Harvard history professor, and university library director, Robert Darnton in the New York Review of Books.”

Also in 2010, the New Haven Review included Mark Oppenheimer’s interview –“On Running a Library in the Age of Kindles” – of the new city librarian, Christopher J. Korenowsky, in its issue 007.  Harvard Magazine described, in an article by Jonathan Shaw, how that university’s libraries are handling “disruptive change.”

 In a September 2011 article, Zoe Gorman’s Yale Daily News article explored digitization of Yale’s collections after the arrival of new university librarian Susan Gibbons.  An April 2011 NPR report addressed, “The Future of Libraries in the E-Book Age.”

 Now through January 28, as Joshua Mamis notes in a New Haven Independent article, an ArtSpace exhibition considers “Library Science.”
