Selected comments from the panelists:
"Today, I can read a 12th century manuscript, but I will have problems reading the brittle pages in the 19th century edition of the same book. What I can't read is the paper I typed on a Commodore 64."
-- Dr. Theodore Steinberg, Department of English

"During the fall semester, on our campus alone, 1.8 million sheets of paper went through [SUNY Fredonia] printers and copiers. The trees we used absorbed 10,000 pounds of CO2 in their lifetimes."
-- Dr. Michael Jabot, College of Education

"In Japan people read tech books almost exclusively online."
-- Janet Mayer, Educational Technologist

"The way we use books and paper will change. We will look for information differently."
