The Library Is Dead, Long Live the Library! The Practice of Academic Librarianship and the Digital Revolution
Ross, Lyman; Sennyey, Pongracz
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v34 n2 p145-152 Mar 2008
As a direct consequence of the digital revolution, academic libraries today face competition as information providers. Using Richard N. Foster's technology S curves as the analytical model, this article shows that academic libraries are in the midst of discontinuous change by questioning a number of assumptions that support the current practice of academic librarianship. The authors challenge these assumptions, and analyze the manner in which digital communications affect academic libraries.
