library: an unquiet history

I’ve just started reading Matthew Battles’ book “Library: an Unquiet History.” I’ll be leading a lunch discussion of the book and the vision session interview with the author at the NASIG 2004.

I’ve just started reading Matthew Battles’ book Library: an Unquiet History. I’ll be leading a lunch discussion of the book and the vision session interview with the author at NASIG 2004. Jessamyn recommended this book in January, and it’s been on my wish-list ever since. However, I haven’t been buying new books until I read the ones I already own. I made an exception for this one, since I was kindly asked by my friend and NASIG Program Planning Committee co-chair to volunteer to lead the lunch connection discussion. I’m curious to read what he has to say about serials and electronic resources. At least, I assume he has something to say about them. Otherwise, it would seem rather odd that one of the main conference sessions is devoted to a conversation with him.
