Effects of technology on higher education, libraries to be discussed
The effects of modern technology on higher education and libraries will be addressed Thursday, Feb. 26, at Ripon College by a Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar.
William Y. Arms of Cornell University will take part in a roundtable discussion, “Libraries in a Digital Age,” at 2 p.m. in the North Reading Room of Lane Library on the Ripon College campus. The informal presentation and group discussion will focus on the impact of technology in libraries over the past half century, the Internet, and how libraries have changed as a result.
At 5:15 p.m. in East Hall Little Theatre, Arms will present “Experiments in Higher Education.” At its best, American higher education is superb, but the price is high and full-time residential education does not suit everybody. Does modern technology enable us to do better?
Arms is professor emeritus of computing and information science at Cornell. Throughout his career, he has been a leader in implementing innovative computing in higher education, including educational computing, computer networks and digital libraries.
Both events are open to the public.
