Is­raeli his­to­rian Yuval Noah Harari has rock­eted to in­ter­na­tional at­ten­tion since 2014 by warn­ing that re­cent trends in com­put­ing, neuro and bi­o­log­i­cal sciences, and bio­engi­neer­ing are de­vel­op­ing the means to pur­sue ‘the new hu­man agenda’ that could al­ter dras­ti­cally hu­man life and so­ci­eties. This pa­per aims to open dis­cus­sion of the im­pli­ca­tions for li­braries and ar­chives of this path we may be on. Key­words: New Hu­man Agenda; li­braries; ar­chives
