What if Libraries Are Artifact-Bound Institutions?
Lewis, David W.
Information Technology and Libraries, v17 n4 p191-97 Dec 1998
Considers whether libraries are artifact-bound institutions and therefore will be replaced as the dominant technology for information communication moves from tangible objects to electronic bits on a network. Topics include what libraries are for; libraries as information subsidy; subsidies for networked information; and the digital library as political metaphor. (Author/LRW)
