Library of Congress abandons binding and storing many recent newspapers

Page history last edited by PBworks 14 years, 3 months ago

From ____Double Fold____ by Nicholson Baker (New York: Vintage Books/Random House, 2001)32:


"Rather than putting up more shelves for the newprint collection, or building or leasing a warehouse-traditional reactions to a space shortage-the Library of Congress's response in 1950 was to abandon the binding and storing of many new newspapers: incoming papers were dumped after a few months, as soon as commericial microfilm arrived to put in their place."
