Masters of the digital multiverse: can public libraries save the day? > The Conversation | The Information Professional | Scoop.it
We all know the internet has enabled the creation of digital worlds of multi-layered, interconnected online information.

"But who’s going to protect this information for current and future generations?

Online publishing is moving away from its embryonic phase – consisting mostly of electronic surrogates of paper or print artefacts – towards a new, fully-fledged networked information paradigm.

Traditional information forms such as encyclopedias and journals are morphing into dynamic, interactive digital objects. Most prominent among these is Wikipedia, the Web 2.0 flagship, which provides a mechanism for open, collaborative and dynamic information authoring and sharing, fostering the co-production of knowledge.

We’ve already seen a proliferation of free information services: Google Books, Google Maps, AustLII, and the ABS Database, to name just a few. Portals such as Health InCite open digital doorways to virtual meta-collections of specialised information."

[...]

"There is a place here for the great public library institutions of the world to work in partnership with commercial providers.

By providing trusted, sustainable archiving of dynamic web knowledge and culture, they can continue to fulfil their vital, ongoing societal role as protectors of our information heritage."
