Excerpt
Introduction: What will happen to libraries when information is mainly produced, stored and distributed in digital format? Is the idea of the physical library so closely linked to books and print media that libraries (as places) will disappear? For decades, questions like these have topped the agenda in discussions about the library sector. Since the Internet breakthrough in the mid-1990?s, such questions have also aroused increasing interest in the general political debate. The idea of the public library is traditionally closely connected to the physical library building. Many people in Western cultures will have visited libraries themselves, and most people would be able to describe the library as a building or a room containing books, run by a helpful staff of librarians. Ever since the Middle Ages, the idea of libraries has been closely connected to the idea of buildings containing books and other media, although the medieval library is perceived as a closed monastery building, in which scholars and monks wrote and monitored entire collections of works. In contrast, the ¯modern® Anglo-American public library represents an institution serving the needs of the general public, by making culture and knowledge available for all citizens of the local community.
