"The Perseus Digital Library and the Future of Libraries"

I write this piece both to offer my views about the future of digital libraries and to do so on the basis of my own past experiences and decisions. These experiences include 35 years of continuous development work on the Perseus Digital Library and 40 years of engagement in what might would now be called the Digital Humanities. The motivations behind the development of what is now Perseus began, however, 50 years ago when I began, in fall 1972, to study Ancient Greek. My experiences and frustrations in the subsequent 10 years as I pursued this subject within the limits of print culture shaped my goals from the earliest days when I embraced the digital turn in 1982 to present and still shape my aspirations for the future.
