People of the Byte  by Alex Joffe

Jews have long been the People of the Book.  But as computers replace 
books and possibly libraries, museums, and universities, will they 
soon be the People of the Byte?  If so, what will happen to their 
understanding of their history?  These were the questions raised by a 
recent two-day conference at the Center for Jewish History titled 
"From Access to Integration."  At the sessions, librarians, 
archivists, and scholars explored the cutting edge of the Jewish 
digital world.
