W‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍hen Johann Gutenberg invented the printing press in 1455, he could not have fathomed his printing of the Gutenberg Bible would set off a printing revolution that spread throughout Europe and then all over the world. Elizabeth Eisenstein puts the printing revolution in perspective by noting the following: the birth of printer’s workshops and an entire new profession in publishing, advertising, the mass evaluation of texts, the development of a common vernacular. Eisenstein (1983) stated: “A man born in 1453, the year of the fall of Constantin‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ople, could look back from his fiftieth year on a lifetime in which about eight million books had been printed, more perhaps than all the scribes of Europe had produced since Constantine founds his city in A.D. 330” (p. 12). Now, we live in a world where digital libraries are found on every campus and e-books are more and more popular as textbooks and popular press. make the argument for or against digital books as a revolution similar to the printing revolution in 1455.
