Born Analog

Siva Vaidhyanathan writes in the Chronicle of Higher Ed to gently but firmly disabuse us of the notion of the digital generation, on two counts. 1) They're not all digital, whether due to lack of access or interest; and 2) "generation" is a fairly empty concept anyway.

The article is a good reminder to be thoughtful about which new technologies we adopt in our libraries, and how we do it. Students aren't all demanding them as fast as we think.
