My Infinite Library.
Libraries & Culture, v37 n1 p64-71 Win 2002
A literary scholar interacts with various other speakers at the Fleur Cowles "Fleur" Symposium 2000 (Austin, TX) and makes his own case for the necessity of physical materials that are always yielding new insights. He rues the apparent denigration of paper materials and the reduction of books even in research libraries and suggests that research librarians should be scholars as well. (Author)
