Title
Virtuality and the future of the printed word : challenges and implications for academic libraries
Source
Technical services quarterly. 13(1996) nos.3/4, S.39-69
Year
1996
Abstract
References to virtual libraries, virtual technology, virtual reality and the Information Superhighway fill technology and library journals, conference programmes, and the popular press. Discusses various definitions of the virtual library and observes that what has so far taken place in academic libraries is merely modernization and automation. To move beyond this stage to a transformation of the academic library and its services new strategies are required, including a reengineering of organizational structures and processes. But ransformation cannot occur in isolation and collaboration and cooperation must reach beyond individual departments, libraries, and campuses, and include commercial as well as academic interests. Suggests how a transformed academic library of the future might function in terms of the physical library; the library's services; organizational structure and personnel; and library networks. 4 potential network models are examined
