The Future of Libraries: Short on Books, Long on Tech

Topic: 

June 25th article in Time.

Usual mishmash of an article that manages to use shushing and stern librarians.

Has this great typo - “I think there’s some value to the ability to hold a book in one’s hand,” said Maureen Sullivan, president of the American Library Association. “There’s something very special about the tactical experience, a personal connection that happens there.”

I assume they were trying to use tactile. If the article now has the word tactile it is a correction because the word used above was directly out of the article.

Full piece.
