A View of Libraries on the Brink
Libraries have weathered tremendous changes over the last several decades. Not that long ago typewriters ruled the day, whereas now virtually everyone has the equivalent of a mainframe computer in their pocket. And we're just getting started. In this look both backwards and forwards, Roy Tennant will describe the place where we currently stand in a broader context of where we have come from and where we are likely to be going.
