  • According to tradition, [the Great Library of Alexandria inEgypt was] destroyed in a fire. Depending on whosestory you believe and which villain you want to blame,this fire happened anywhere from 47 BCE to 641CE. Or perhaps the Great Library fell on hard timesand gradually lost its collection over the centuriesto deterioration, theft, and other unspectacularcauses. In any case, it’s so thoroughly lost that no oneeven knows what happened to it, and with it a hugeamount of ancient literature vanished.—Gary McGrathFiles that LastApril 2013“

  • Disaster became the impetus. Ourorganization’s long-delayed plans tosecure a collection stored on unstableformats now had critical urgency.—JONATHAN MINARDquoted in “After Sandy, Eyebeam is Thriving”Hyperallergic, 18 April 2013http://hyperallergic.com/69094/after-sandy-eyebeam-is-thriving/“
