4. Conclusion

The conclusion reflects on the limits of technologisation for textual heritage. While creating cultural artefacts is destroying natural resources, this chapter argues that as a society, even as a global one, we have been able to build the material and intellectual conditions to provide access to community-building cultural artefacts, especially text. It encourages today's actors to envision a future where access to text is a common good that even more societies can rely on than it is the case today.
