College Libraries: the Long Goodbye

Dennis Dillon, Tidsskriftet for Universiteternes Efter- og Videreuddannelse, Dec 07, 2004
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Whatever replaces the library must be some kind of library, and that whatever replaces the book must be some kind of book. So it seems after reading this article, one in which the writer, a lover of libraries, comes to grips with the decline of the library (and appears to have moved into Stage Seven: Acceptance). But of course there's no reason to expet that online knowledge of the future will resemble the book and the library. But not everybody's ready for that yet.
