Today I attended a roundtable and lecture at the National Gallery of Art. The roundtable discussed "Digital Projects in the Humanities" and the lecture was titled, "The History of Books and the Digital Future."

I enjoyed these lectures very much, as they provided much to think over and peruse further. It was definitely an afternoon well-spent!
