The Hunt Library in “The American Conservative”

Does the Hunt Library promote a type of learning in which books are “lost in the shuffle”?  Or does it “serve its patrons in fostering reading and learning [with] a humane understanding of just what books are for”?

In “The ‘Bookless’ Library” and “Are Libraries for Books or People?” two writers (one a recent NC State grad) for The American Conservative produce dueling articles to explore the role of the Hunt Library in the future of reading and research.
