Oh, the humanities!

The sharp-eyed She-Wolfe spotted this item in the NYT this morning.  Knowing we carry something of a chip on our lupine shoulder about the humanities and how the arts are always snatching the big servings of money and attention from under the starving museums and libraries, she drew our attention to the clever use of modern data mining to give the fusty humanities a whiff of Tomorrow.  We’re ready to digitize everything we can reach, starting with our own circulation cards, which may be able to tell us what it really is that our borrowers want to read.  We’re always thinking about that.  Perhaps when we are totally wired, the CIA will come to call.  Won’t that be exciting?
