The Futurist Interviews Librarian Futurist David Lankes | World Future Society

The Futurist Interviews Librarian Futurist David Lankes | World Future Society | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

"As more information moves online, traditional libraries are losing relevance, but librarians are becoming more important than ever.

Rick Docksai, staff editor for THE FUTURIST, spoke with Lankes about his book and his views on libraries’ future."
