Summary
"Offers stand-alone chapters and opinion pieces that also form part of a coherent whole. It has an international approach and is written by experts in the field of information provision who discuss their views on the hypothesis surrounding the 'end of libraries' and the 'death of books.' These contributions are analysed and summarised to create a rich picture of current trends and likely futures for libraries of all types, with digital options discussed in detail"--
