Abstract. Rarebooks Using/Reading Studies: The goal of this research is to provide an in-depth understanding of human-rare historic book interaction to enhance the use of the classical works and to inspire for future technology. Research in human-rare book interaction helps in designing and developing physical-virtual renderings of rare books that provide integrated haptic, audio, olfactory, visual and cognitive human-rare book interaction for the public. Current research and technology can be categorized according to five characteristics: expected users, content and content management, navigation, presentation, and interaction control. A research investigating how young adults (novices) in northern Europe interacted with a rare historic books indicates that interaction engendered appreciation and curiosity. Interaction also had an affective impact, eliciting personal memories and emotions. Interacting only visually with books or their representations would not have afforded the same results.
