For half a millennium, paper has been at the center of the academic enterprise, not just conceptually but architecturally, with many campuses arranged with the library at their center. Now, though, the core academic functions of collaboration, publication, dissemination, and argument are being virtualized. This change challenges many organizational and cultural assumptions, and moves the role of information and communication technology from a support function into the center of the academic enterprise.
