Photographs used in this essay capture some of the multimodal transitions already taking place at Findlay College during the 1960s and early 1970s. Photographs include students moving books as part of the library's move from the basement of the Old Main building housing mainly print texts to the new library building on campus that included microfiche and microfilm readers (the "brand new" library can be seen in the "How the Liberal Arts..." link, in back of the Old Main building). Other photographs highlight newer venues for composition on campus such as high speed electric typewriters and audio technology. Despite these alternate modes for composing, key components of traditional liberal arts knowledge, such as art classes, remained popular.
