The Rare, The Medium-Rare, and The Well-Done: Thinking about Books, Microchips, and Libraries by Michael Suarez, S.J.

Libraries have always housed recent books as well as very old, rare, and collectible books. Today, libraries also provide access to innumerable electronic resources, and a surprising portion of their books are now available in digital form. What is the future of the book in the digital age? What might the book as a material artifact have to teach scholars and students across the disciplines? What is the relationship today between the book, the microchip, and the library?

Michael Suarez, S.J. is Director of the Rare Book School, Professor of English, University Professor, and Honorary Curator of Special Collections at the University of Virginia
