We have recently added an important reference for our wide study of resilience of book transmission. This is philology and the legacy of comparative study of texts. We can extend this reference to include currently studied “comparative textual media” as we expand philology to include screen and audio transmissions of texts. Our philology frame can also be extended if we add library science to engage books or bibliographic units and their arrangements into libraries. We could call the extension “philology of comparative libraries” and such projections could be extended to include audio and screen media.
