Public Images of the Role of Information Technology in Public Libraries: Alternatives and Controversies.
Raber, Douglas; Budd, John M.
Public Libraries, v38 n3 p180-86 May-Jun 1999
Discusses four competing public images of the public library and its relation to information technology, as identified in recent research: the traditional library, the resisting library, the adapting library, and the co-opted library. Suggests that the public perceives the management of public information as a complex problem requiring a variety of sources, technologies, and personnel to resolve this problem. (AEF)
