Libraries and the Future explores how the trends and technological breakthroughs of today will transform the shape of libraries as they move into the twenty-first century. Enlightening chapters discuss the future of academic libraries, public libraries, library services in developing countries, and library services from the perspective of scholarly users, library funders, and policymakers. These authoritative contributors present a wide-range of viewpoints but they all agree that the near future offers great opportunity for libraries to make their services more valuable to the community of potential users than they have ever been before. Libraries and the Future provides the way for libraries to be active forces, to emphasize the delivery of information, not its storage, and to be judged by the services they deliver, not the assets they control.
