The Globe and Mail: A new world of digital libraries

The Globe and Mail: A new world of digital libraries: “There are still books on the shelves of university libraries across Canada – at least for the moment. But, given the views of their librarians, that might not be true for much longer.”

I’m sure this is meant to be an upbeat article showing that libraries are not just trend followers but also trend setters and that they are adapting to technological changes, but there’s just something about the tone that puts me off a bit.

It’s nice to see an article about libraries and their services in a national newspaper (I wonder if it’s in print too?). I’m sure there’s nothing new here to those of us in the LIS field but maybe our patrons don’t realize how much we do spend on our resources and how we do want to provide them with the best tools possible.
