“This is going to be completely different,” said Foundation CEO David Simas, reports The Chicago Tribune. “What the president and first lady said … is they simply did not want a museum that served as a mausoleum, as a way to look back.”

The Confederate soldier was peculiar in that he was ever ready to fight, but never ready to submit to the routine duty and discipline of the camp or the march. The soldiers were determined to be soldiers after their own notions, and do their duty, for the love of it, as they thought best. Carlton McCarthy

I can see both sides of this, but my greatest concern is in what exactly will be available digitally. And what will not. I also don't like that the documents themselves will be physically unavailable.

Where is the physical birth certificate?

Physical libraries with a collection that is also available online serve no purpose anymore. That money can be spent more effectively for other purposes.

The actual physical things can still be stored in some archive, but for 99% of all people interested in this, the digital format is sufficient.

We have the same discussion with research libraries at universities. The truth is that basically nobody goes there anymore. I go there maybe once every 2-3 years to make a copy of some old paper that isn't available online, but it wouldn't be a big loss if it would be gone completely.

The Presidential Library is nothing more than a modern day pyramid, built for the edification of whatever President is building it. They are all a colossal waste of money. :rolleyes2:

I have no idea how much presidential libraries were used in the past - maybe they did serve some scholarly purpose and were used by historians etc.? But that time is over, and not just for presidential libraries but for most of written human knowledge.

FDR started the PL, but the building stuff has taken on a life of its own. Even in today's digital world, one often sees tidbit emerge from a President's papers...
