The National Printed Archive from Panizzi’s Time to the Digital Era

I. R. Willison (notes)

Abstract

We have tended to view the modern development of the national research library and printed archive in the West in terms of a sequence of conspicuous innovators: Panizzi, Althoff and Harnack , Putnam and Evans, Francis and Hookway. Such a sequence can be best understood if it is seen as interacting not only with the order of learning but with the larger process of cultural-political change in general.
