Jan 30, 2014 - 6:30 - 7:30 - Honors Lounge MH 336 Moderator: Dr Harry S. Delugach, Honors College Director With the proliferation of the internet, online courses and eBooks, nearly all written content is available in electronic form. More and more of our information is gathered through electronic means. Some have compared this revolution in media to another one that occurred five hundred years ago when the printing press revolutionized large-scale access to written materials. This leads to some interesting questions, which we'll discuss in this month's Hot Topic. Are books becoming obsolete, like handwritten scrolls of the past? Since producing content without consuming large resources (trees, gasoline, etc.) is cheaper and faster than printing books, does this change the way we think about the written word? Will there even be a role in the future for printed books? Udall Scholarships Scholarships are available!
