Revolution in the Library.
Himmelfarb, Gertrude
American Scholar, v66 n2 p197-204 Spr 1997
Changes in library services due to advancing information technology constitute a revolution comparable to invention of the printing press. Democratization of access to knowledge is a positive development, but it should not be confused with democratization of knowledge. This is where any system of information networking may be misleading; in cyberspace, every resource seems as authoritative as any other. (MSE)
