Does this picture bring back memories? Former students may remember our rows and rows of infamous “brown books”, weary looking tomes that contained Nineteenth Century Literary Criticism (NCLC), Twentieth Century Literary Criticism (TCLC), and Contemporary Literary Criticism (CLC). Students didn’t particularly like using these series, because, in most cases, they reprinted partial essays and critiques. Some of the more demanding Clarkstown teachers insisted that the students have access to the entire essay. Pre-internet days, this was very difficult for our small public library to find. The books also looked unappealing, and even I preferred other sources, although the content was excellent. Another problem is that students, who were without a dime for the photocopier, or who were malicious, would remove the much wanted pages, leaving the rest of the students bereft. Missing pages are no longer a problem with on-line sources, and we happily got to say goodbye to those cumbersome and space consuming books when we switched to the e-book version.
