BIBLIOTECH Why Libraries Matter More Than Ever in the Age of Google

by | Read by Tom Zingarelli

Contemporary Culture • 5.45 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Palfrey presents a defense of traditional libraries and suggestions on how these institutions can adapt to survive and thrive in the digital age. In making his case, the author provides two perspectives--that of a library director and that of a non-librarian. Narrator Tom Zingarelli provides the perfect delivery for this message. His deep voice is expressive, and he adeptly uses pauses to break the text into manageable pieces, especially as Palfrey explores some jargon-heavy topics such as changes to education, copyright laws, and emerging technologies. Zingarelli also uses shifts in inflection and pitch to highlight Palfrey's arguments and conclusions. Overall, this is an excellent reading of a timely book.
