Title
¬The first post-industrial democracy : the future of information in America
Source
Svensk biblioteks forskning. 1996, no.4, S.5-15
Year

Abstract
Based on the Blomqvist lecture delivered in Boras Oct 96, Daniel Bell proposed a new model called the Post-Undustrial Society in which information is a market commodity. This metaphor had an impact on US information policy. Examines 2 recent examples of government intervention in national library affairs, one providing massive state support for libraries, the other Reagan's attempt to redefine the purpose of libraries. Hopes for return to the idea of information as a public good were not fulfilled with Clinton, who quickly moved to support private sector development of the information market place, thus eroding government support for the public library system. The Administration's defence of intellectual property rights threatens fair use for library users. While aware of the need to secure free flow of ideas the government is also pressured to impose censorship of violent and pornographic materials. But the most disturbing feature is the implication that the information system should be privatised
