Role of the Public Library in the 21st Century.
Journal of Educational Media & Library Sciences, v37 n3 p256-264 Mar 2000
The role of the public library has changed with the advent of the Internet and digital technology. In addition to its traditional role as a storehouse of information, the role of the public library now encompasses a range of duties such as a resource learning center, a community center, and a business liaison. The opportunities for service have vastly increased. (Author/AEF)
