  • The Literature of American Library History, 2016–2017
    • Abstract: Libraries are reservoirs of strength, grace and wit, reminders of order, calm and continuity, lakes of mental energy, neither warm nor cold, light nor dark.Within a year after the founding of the Journal of Library History in 1966, Michael Harris produced the first edition of this long-standing review. And for more than fifty years this biennial assessment has appeared in the JLH and its successors. With retirement in my near future, this will be my last contribution to this venerable series. I fervently hope someone will step up and continue this worthy endeavor.The past few editions of this essay have contained a call for updating the three basic sources we created years ago to capture our historiographic ...

  • "Hemisphere Training": Exporting the Psychological Self at the
           Inter-American Popular Information Program
    • Abstract: In 1958 a group of American information experts published a wordless pamphlet for Venezuelan farmers designed to make visible "advanced corn cultivation techniques" (figure 1). The wordless pamphlet would become one of the signature achievements of the Inter-American Popular Information Program (IIP), an invention of Nelson Rockefeller's American International Association for Economic and Social Development (AIA). The IIP was founded in 1958 "to establish wide-spread contact between technicians and the uninformed populations" and was charged with the task of targeting the attitudes that were conceived as key markers of their "backwardness."1 As part of this attempt to target "uninformed" attitudes, the IIP was ...

  • A Tale of Two Networks: The Bell Telephone System and the Meaning of
           "Information," 1947–1968
    • Abstract: In 1968 major newspapers across the country began to publish items regarding the Bell System's information operator service and its impending name change. A brief dated June 28, 1968, from the Chicago Daily News notes: "Illinois Bell Telephone Co. is changing the name of its information service to 'Directory Assistance' because too many persons take the name literally. A student recently called to ask the operator if he is a mammal, 'like a whale.' And one startled operator got a call from a frantic woman who wanted to know how to get a squirrel out of her house."1As they did to most major changes to existing services of all kinds, the general public responded to Bell's information name change with some indignation ...

  • Collecting as Routine Human Behavior: Personal Identity and Control in the
           Material and Digital World
    • Abstract: Hunting-gathering is considered an early adaptation of humans to the world and for the majority of our species' history is how humans existed. Over time, the gradual shift from hunting and scavenging to a more pastoral, agricultural existence and from there to a competing urban, industrial model has marked the sweep of global progress.1 A constant throughout has been the human desire to acquire and control resources. At a fundamental level, gathering or collecting objects of all kinds is part of human psychology, but our understanding of this in a theoretical and scholarly sense remains limited.Great collections of objects have marked societies for millennia. From the loot of war to the crown jewels of monarchs ... Read More

  • IBM: The Rise and Fall and Reinvention of a Global Icon by James Cortada
           (review)
    • Abstract: James W. Cortada's newly released book, IBM: The Rise and Fall and Reinvention of a Global Icon, is a behemoth of a book for a behemoth of a company. Over the course of 752 pages, Cortada, a technology historian who also had a long career at IBM himself, chronicles the century-pluslong span of a company that once dominated American business. As a narrative history of a sprawling business, the book succeeds, with Cortada weaving in scholarly historiographical debates and analysis as relevant throughout the book. The book is massive and exhaustively researched, but not difficult to read. Cortada's prose is straightforward and transparent, despite occasional awkward phrasing and a tendency to place perfectly ordinary ... Read More

  • Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men by Caroline Criado
           Perez (review)
    • Abstract: Invisible Women is an extensively researched new monograph by Caroline Criado Perez on gender data gaps, far-reaching gaps in data collection practices across domains, industries, and geographies that render the experience of women invisible and subsumed in the "male default." A feminist activist and journalist, Criado Perez sets out an ambitious program for the book, which she describes as "an exposé of how the gender data gap harms women when life proceeds, more or less as normal. . . . Invisible Women is a call for change. . . . It's time for a change in perspective. It's time for women to be seen" (25). This timely and compelling book offers an impressive array of empirical cases that demonstrate the ... Read More

  • The Scientific Journal: Authorship and the Politics of Knowledge in the
           Nineteenth Century by Alex Csiszar (review)
    • Abstract: Many scholars might like to believe the notion that scientific research and publishing are both divorced from the messy world of politics. They might also like to believe that scholarly publishing is largely immutable and that the way things are is the way things have always been. The reality, however, could not be further from the truth. In The Scientific Journal:
      Authors hip and Politics of Knowledge in the Nineteenth Century, Alex Csiszar takes us on a grand tour of the intersection between politics and scholarly communication over a crucial period in the recent history of western Europe.

  • Spotify Teardown: Inside the Black Box of Streaming Music by Maria
           Eriksson, Rasmus Fleischer, Anna Johansson, et al. (review)
    • Abstract: Spotify Teardown: Inside the Black Box of Streaming Music is an ambitious, wide-ranging, and mistitled book. Studying firms like Spotify is notoriously challenging: it is practically impossible for researchers (especially those with critical orientations) to gain access to the code or the offices that we might envision as the "insides" of such organizations. The present book is no exception: in spite of a large, prestigious grant from the Swedish government, the authors found their early entreaties to Spotify rebuffed and ignored (1, 182). Undaunted, they embraced what they call an "attitude of outsideness" (190), reframing their lack of access as a virtue, avoiding "a formal procedure of gatekeeper introduction" ... Read More

  • Power Button: A History of Pleasure, Panic, and the Politics of Pushing by
           Rachel Plotnick (review)
    • Abstract: The title of Rachel Plotnick's book itself manages to push several buttons at once. Besides the felicitous main title, the subtitle in particular flicks on one line of associations after the other, like a series of street lights, if you will. Converging at the fuse box that is Plotnick's book, they make not only for an evocative book title but also for an epistemological thesis: much can be learned and understood about modern culture and society by studying the functionality of its buttons.Of course, there is much intuitive evidence to support such a thesis, above all, as Plotnick effortlessly shows, the ubiquity of buttons in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Buttons are "everywhere," they follow our ... Read More

  • Raymond Klibansky and the Warburg Library Network: Intellectual
           Peregrinations from Hamburg to London and Montreal ed. by Philippe Despoix
           and Jillian Tomm (review)
    • Abstract: This excellent book draws extensively on published and archival unpublished sources (found in repositories such as the Warburg Institute Archive in London, the Deutsches Literaturarchiv Marbach, and McGill University), including correspondence, memories, and diaries, concerning the Warburg library known as the Kulturwissenshaftliche Bibliothek Warburg (KBW), which was founded by Aby Warburg in Hamburg, Germany, in the 1920s. It shows how the KBW fostered intellectual exchange, transmission, and transformation in the fields of art, myth, religion, medicine, philosophy, intellectual history, and the classics. It takes the reader on a journey into almost half a century of intellectual life at one of the most ... Read More

  • The Politics of Mass Digitization by Nanna Bonde Thylstrup (review)
    • Abstract: The defining concept of our time is mass digitization. The world of cultural memory, for instance, has become consumed with it. Diverse kinds of cultural memory collections are being digitized on industrial scales for diverse political and cultural purposes of access, preservation, research, control, and use. These mass digitization projects, however, are not neutral technical endeavors or processes, nor are they simple continuations of existing cultural memory politics or practices. These projects instead are new sociopolitical and sociotechnical phenomena that are altering the politics of cultural memory.In The Politics of Mass Digitization, Nanna Bonde Thylstrup critically examines mass digitization's ...

  • The Robotic Imaginary: The Human and the Price of Dehumanized Labor by
           Jennifer Rhee (review)
    • Abstract: Though this book focuses on robots, it is first and foremost about the human—in its shifting definitions and barbarous exclusions—and the ways the figure of the robot across culture and technology inscribes and challenges these various definitions and dehumanizing exclusions.We exist in a moment where attempts to know and manage the human through automated and predictive technologies are deployed at every turn and in a dangerously experimental fashion. In The Robotic Imaginary, Jennifer Rhee rejects the givenness of the human, the notion that the human is knowable or inherently recognizable. From the Turing test onward, capturing and translating human essence—discussed in the book as anthropomorphizing—became a ... Read More

  • The Poem Electric: Technology and the Lyric by Seth Perlow (review)
    • Abstract: Seth Perlow's book The Poem Electric: Technology and the Lyric is structured through oppositions and resistances: four main chapters pose characteristics of lyric poetry (namely, affect, chance, anonymity, and improvisation) in contrast to rationalism, knowledge, and information. Perlow identifies these oppositions by exploring technologies associated with four literary subperiods: romanticism and realism, modernism, postmodernism, and the Beat generation. The technologies that he considers are at times anachronistic to the poets and poetry writing that are the main subjects of each chapter, but the relationships he draws between poem, poet, and technology illustrate either the way a poet has used a technology or a ...
