More on the Future of Libraries

This is an essay from LISNews – five basics (Commentary at the link):

1.) Perception of information is changing

2.) Literacy is changing

3.) Libraries are now part of greater information chorus

4.) Communication is our friend

5.) The underlying philosophies of the library have not changed

I think selling #3 is the really hard one. In all the reading for the last course, there are just some that think all information can be gathered from the internet without it being organized by anyone.
