The article “unbinding the atlas” brings up a question I’ve always thought about but never gave it more thought. I have to admit that this will be my first time in maybe 7 years (since high school, possibly) that I will be visiting a New York City library, and I’m quite excited. Especially to be utilizing it for the historic maps which are found online but there’s some that my class and I have learned are not online. The articles and historic maps are strategically posted online while the beauty of visiting a library the “old school” way is still there. And the decision to post them was questioned, my vote is against that because when you enter a library or use anything from there you assume that the source is creditable and you don’t doubt it. The web creates an uncertainty because anyone can post anyone.
