The “Future of…” Conversation Continues Wednesday, 2/15

Future of Books in the Internet Age DiscussionPlease join us for a vibrant discussion of “The Future of Books in the Internet Age.” How will ascent of e-books and the proliferation of tablets and e-readers impact reading, scholarship and pedagogy?  Who are the winners and losers? What are the opportunities for scholars, bookstores, and libraries? These are but a few of the questions that will be considered! The discussion will take place in the Marcus White Living Room at 12:15pm. Invited guests include Jack Dougherty, Associate Professor of Educational Studies at Trinity College and co-editor of the web-book, Writing History in the Digital Age, and State Librarian Kendall Wiggin.

The program is sponsored by the Elihu Burritt Library in conjunction with the Arts & Public Policy Committee, Philosophy Department and Honors Program.

  1. Gosh, ebooks are everywhere now. People are trying to hard to monetize the internet, but I’m not sure its working too well.

  2. Time will tell whether ebooks are a viable alternative. As of now the e-books are still in it’s infancy stage.
