Geoff Smith’s preface (entitled Collecting The New) to the AN AMERICAN AVANT GARDE: SECOND WAVE catalog.
“Several years ago, on a tour of the Bodleian Library at Oxford University with David Vesey, then Bodleian Librarian, he uttered a truism that, in my own awestruck demeanor in the presence of the great treasures of that great library, had not occurred to me: the reason the Bodley has so many outstanding early volumes is that those books were new when they were first deposited at Oxford. […] The special mission for rare book libraries is to identify these important contemporary works so that we may preserve them for perpetuity in our collections. It would be our vision that hundreds of years from now, when a naive visitor to OSU Libraries wonders how such treasures were amassed, the librarian of that time can blithely say, because we acquired them when they were new.”
“In 2017 alone, the National Archives added 17.1 million digital files (texts, images, sound recordings, and films) to its online catalog.”

Tom Beckett’s Exchange Values interview blog
Forty interviews by & of a wide range of people. (2005-2008)
Wave Composition is a quarterly webjournal featuring essays, interviews and creative work. It is a forum for thoughtful reflection on experimental literature and art from all periods.
Wave Composition‘s interests lie in the ‘experimental’ and all the problems that arise from using that word. Even while it explores/analyses/promotes explicitly experimental texts, music, art and creators, it also attempts to find the avant-garde in less obvious literary, academic, or artistic fields. The result is that Wave Composition is itself keen to find and utilize experimental approaches, both structural and methodological, which can challenge conventional understandings of certain concepts, including, but not limited to, canonicity, tradition, genre, and popular culture.
Editors: Ed Sugden, Stephen Ross and Alexandra Manglis
