Abstract
Two years ago the author gave a keynote talk at the Essen Symposium that suggested that technology has lulled librarians into a false sense of security and that there is no real evidence that the increasing use of technology has improved library services at all. This talk carries this theme one stage further, suggesting that technology may actually encourage mediocrity in library and information services
