Access, schmaccess: libraries in the Age of Information Ubiquity

The 21st century isn't just here, it's already 12% over. The presence of ubiquitous access to a global information network, and the cultures that flourish on that network, change everything about Libraries... or do they? Eli will highlight some of the contrasts between the Web Culture of this Century, and the Broadcast Culture of the last century, exploring how the value, mission, and focus of libraries are impacted by this cultural change, which has still barely begun. Maybe the library of the future is not really so different from the library of the past... from a certain point of view."
