    Libraries and the Assault on Paper

    Resource Type: Book
    Published: 2001
    Double Fold examines the preservation of books in United States libraries over the past 50 years. It details the libraries' "war" on books -- the alarming lack of preservation and the destruction of hundreds of thousands of irreplacable bound originals including 19th-century illustrated dailies. He chronicles the attempts to find ways of preserving books from both the ravages of time and the librairies' lack of shelf space. He also explains how librairies use the spectre of disintegrating books as part of their fundraising stategy. Baker offers aternative solutions to these problems. His ultimate and pesuasive plea is for librairies to stop "executing" the originals.

    Published: 2012
    CONNEXIONS and Beit Zatoun are spotlighting grassroots archives this November with an open house and networking event November 24, a talk and discussion November 27, and an exhibit (November 16-27). Grassroots archives play a valuable role in what has been called “the battle of memory”. Mainstream media and institutions of power consign inconvenient histories, struggles, and alternative visions to what George Orwell called “the memory hole.” People’s history projects such as grassroots archives preserve and share stories of resistance, hidden histories, and alternative visions. Their role is particularly important as official archives are forced to restrict acquisitions, limit access and discard materials as funding is slashed.
