Print for the People, a Mizzou Advantage networking group on digital humanities, is considering these questions. We will host, "The Future of Archives in a Digital Age," on February 24–25, 2011, with keynote addresses by Robert Darnton, Director of the University Library at Harvard, and William Ferris, former chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
