Title
¬The incredible vanishing library
Source
American libraries. 26(1995) no.9, S.900,902,904
Year
1995
Abstract
In their rush to embrace the new technologies that have facilitated remote access to catalogues and document delivery services and are now ushering in the virtual library, librarians and users are unwittingly undermining the institution of the library. Suggests that the library is becoming invisible and its larger purposes risk being lost. At the same time, takes issue with the view that the great libraries of america are being 'trashed' by the rush towards technology and addresses some of the issues raised; such as how to balance the obligation to collect with the need to provide access, how to better serve the scholarly community, and how to enhance the library in the face of its declining visibility. Concludes by urging librarians, library users and funding authorities to discuss anew how the library may serve the intellectual needs of diverse users
