Physical…Digital…It’s All Important

The Internet Archive is well known for its achievement in digitizing large amounts of content and providing free access online. This past weekend, David Streitfeld wrote an article for the New York Times about the Internet Archive entitled, “In a Flood Tide of Digital Data, an Ark Full of Books.” The article, however, did not focus on the Archive’s 15 plus years of contributions to digital collections. Instead, it highlighted digital librarian and founder Brewster Kahle‘s physical collection of books — which he hopes one day reaches 10 million.

Check out The Librarian (1947), which can be found via the Internet Archive.
