Libraries, Community and Technology

Heftet / 2002 / Engelsk
A number of people, including politicians, techies, and even librarians themselves, are convinced that if libraries are not obsolete now, it is only a matter of time until they are, thanks to the Internet. Many others, though, are optimistic about the future of libraries and their continuing role in shaping a community's cultural life. Libraries have changed but important things about them have not. This book is a collection of 15 essays written by the author. All of the essays consider the relationships between libraries, the communities they serve, and the technology that has become such a significant part of them.
