The e-book phenomenon: a disruptive technology

The e-book phenomenon: a disruptive technology | Information Science | Scoop.it
The e-book and its associated technology have emerged as a disruptive technology over the past ten years. The aim of this paper is to discuss some of the consequences of this development, based on the work of the e-books in Sweden research project. To explain the impact of the e-book phenomenon we use Winston’s theory of technological innovation, with particular reference to the ‘supervening social necessity’, the combination of factors that turns an innovation into a marketable product. As a result of the technology all aspects of the production, distribution and use of books is affected. The e-book is having different effects in different sectors and in different parts of the world: rapid development in the USA, slower in France and Japan; rapid development in academic libraries, slower development in public libraries, from country to country. These differences suggest that one supervening social necessity may be needed to explain the divergencies. There is a great deal of exaggeration of the impact of the e-book, based mainly on its influence in the USA. Development in other countries is taking place more slowly and differently and in ‘small language’ countries like Sweden, the pace of development, except in academic libraries is likely to be slow.

Press Release: The future we want includes culture

Press Release: The future we want includes culture | Information Science | Scoop.it
Today, on behalf of EBLIDA, Klaus-Peter Böttger, EBLIDA President, signed the Declaration for the Inclusion of Culture in the Sustainable Development Goals post-2015:  The future we want includes culture.


EBLIDA endorses the Declaration: “We believe that culture is both a driver and an enabler of sustainable development and that the explicit inclusion of targets and indicators for culture in the Sustainable Development Goals will enable transformative change”.


EBLIDA supports the role of culture in UNESCO’s Sustainable Development Goals post-2015:



Culture is necessary for building democratic societies;


Culture is key to building a peaceful social existence as well as mutual understanding between different communities;


Culture is an essential aspect of sustainable development.



Why is this important?


Global expenditure on development over the next 15 years will be defined by the final goal document to be agreed by UN Member States in the coming months. If culture is not mentioned, it will be extremely difficult for countries to elaborate policies and provide funds for projects that rely on culture’s role as a driver and an enabler of sustainable development.


‘Culture’ was completely absent from the Millennium Development Goals document http://www.un.org/millenniumgoals/. Don’t let this happen again.


Why is this urgent?


The UN’s Open Working Group (OWG) on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) http://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/owg.html holds working sessions to draft a list of goals, targets and indicators. Culture is again almost absent. The OWG’s draft of the SDGs will be finalised in July 2014.


What can you do to help?


EBLIDA calls on its members to sign the declaration and to help raise awareness of the UN’s Member States of culture’s vital contribution to sustainable development.


The full text of the declaration is accessible at http://culture2015goal.net/index.php/home/declaration.


Twitter: #culture2015goal


The Declaration has already been signed by more than 450 organisations (including IFLA and Culture Action Europe) and by numerous individuals. Please join the global campaign and sign the declaration.
