  • On June 26, 1974, at 8:01 a.m., Sharon Buchanan used a barcode to ring up a 10-pack of Juicy Fruit at the Marsh Supermarket in Troy, Ohio. That pack is now in the Smithsonian, but scanners and barcodes are just about everywhere. They connect the physical world to the digital world and back. They aren’t just simply numbers anymore, too,
  • In the worlds of traditional discovery, also include A&I services (either print or online)
  • And as science has changed, so too have the ways in which scholarship is communicated and distributed. Increasingly paper is no longer the main medium of distributing findings. Most academic journals have already moved online and many are ceasing print publication altogether. Increasingly, the limitations of physical distribution are also falling away. We are no longer tied simply to text or static images. Science can be communicated in moving images, data visualizations, programs, and even datasets themselves, which can be separately analyzed, reprocessed and reused.

    Created in England in the late twelfth century, this manuscript was intended to be a scientific textbook for monks.
