What is technology? Although the definition changes depending on context, editor Melissa Morrone starts off her collection of oral history interviews, Human Operators: A Critical Oral History on Technology in Libraries and Archives, by posing that question. In a unique style, Morrone compiles, edits, and connects interviews from 42 different librarians and archivists into one book that reads like a conversational narrative. Many interesting topics are covered throughout, but the book mainly provides responses from librarians and archivists about how we, as humans, use and ultimately feel about technology in different environments.
