    Technologies of Memory: Digitization and the Future of the Nineteenth
    Century

    What is the archive of the nineteenth-century history of reading? And what
    will be its content and contours in the wake of wide-scale digitization? To
    address these questions, this talk looks in two directions: first, at the
    evidence of use in individual nineteenth-century books and, second, at the
    changing nature of academic research libraries after Google. Out of
    copyright, non-rare, and often fragile due to poor paper quality,
    nineteenth-century printed books are both richly served and particularly
    imperiled in the new media ecosystem. As scenes of evidence, they are at
    once exposed and occluded by the digitization of our library collections.
