Digital Humanities and Research Libraries

In a blog appearing in today's issue of The Chronicle Review, Stanley Katz, who directs the Center for Arts and Cultural Policy Studies at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School, offers his views on the growing importance of research libraries to digital humanities:
. . . what I want to stress today is my sense that the crucial change required to make the digital humanities revolution work for scholars is the continued transformation of the research library, which I believe is the best site for collaborative interaction between scholars, library technologists, and communicator-publishers. The challenge is to work together across formal barriers to achieve our common goals — once we articulate them.
Katz will continue to develop his ideas on the topic in subsequent blog entries. Anyone interested in following his contributions to the Chronicle's blog Brainstorm can do so via an RSS feed. The Chronicle of Higher Education has a page of links to its RSS feeds including Brainstorm.

The Nike Air Max 1(aka Nike Air Max or Nike Air Max 87 was released in a variety of colors and fabric combinations which have given it a contempory flavor.The first retro of the Air Max 1 came in 1992. Nike used the soles of the Air Max 90 to save money on production of this shoe. Due to the mismatch of the upper to sole, this version has been in high demand to find. All of the retros in 1992 were leather, but Nike went back to its roots when it brought our the Nike Air Max 1 again in nylon versions in 1995.
The Nike Air Max 1 has been released in more colors than any one collector has possessed.The Nike Air Max 1 is commonly used for limited releases such as for the opening of the store Atmos, Kid Robot, and there was a special one made for an Amsterdam only release.
