Literature in the Information Age.
New Advocate, v13 n1 p17-23 Win 2000
Asks what happens when budget and organizational restrictions deny students access to books in their school and public libraries. Suggests that without books, young people are missing the places where they find the sanctuary, direction, discovery, and knowledge that literature offers. Argues that information is about data; literature is about knowledge; and that children need to participate in both. (SR)
