Hybridity, Mutability, Multiplicity: Theorizing Electronic Library Collections.
Manoff, Marlene
Library Trends, v48 n4 p857-76 Spr 2000
As electronic objects challenge categorical distinctions central to library organization, efforts are being made to integrate these hybrids and new forms into traditional library systems and to recreate the stability of the print environment. Explores conceptual and theoretical issues raised by the proliferation of electronic objects and suggests that the current situation calls for a reconceptualization of collection development and bibliographic access.
