Seventy-five Years of The Journal of the Rutgers University Libraries
Keywords:Rutgers, English literature, American literature, history, Bibliography, Books, Printing
Will the Journal last another twenty-five years to its one hundredth anniversary? That is difficult to say. While many bibliographic library journals have ceased in the last few decades, I feel there is still a place for the Journal. As Tom Fulton notes in his article in this volume, “One of the most exciting developments in the study of reading over the past twenty years has been a return to books themselves as evidence for the way in which people read.” Along with a reinvigorated interest in the history of the book at Rutgers and elsewhere, the Journal offers an important venue for articles reflecting these trends. But with the rapid transformation in technology, who knows what will happen to the genre of the academic journal itself? We at least have taken steps that have brought us strongly into the digital age.
