"Technology is the campfire around which we tell our stories." ― Laurie Anderson
Born digital material is created by the thousands every single hour. Every text sent, every document created, every photograph taken. These materials are vast and ever growing, both in size and formats. But, where did born digital begin? And when did the Rose Library start collecting this material? In this exhibit, we examine the collecting story of born digital materials at the Rose alongside the evolution of the technology creating these materials.
