Digital technology is changing the way we store information, and how we learn from it. Does it still make sense to stack thousands of printed books in costly buildings when virtual libraries are just a mouse-click away?
We encourage you to listen to a special townhall episode of Cross Country Checkup on CBC Radio One this Sunday, September 28th, which will try to answer this question. Host Peter Mansbridge will be speaking live from the University of Waterloo's Stratford Campus with staff and students from their digital humanities program.
Form your own opinion on the subject - the Cross Country Checkup website is a good place to start. It has links to opinion pieces from both sides of the debate.
