Book Description

With more and more content going digital, many in the library world are questioning what the future holds for us in this new landscape. Libraries are faced with responding to a dramatic shift in how patrons are accessing and consuming information in this new digital age in tandem with dwindling budgets, fierce competition from other markets, and rising patron (and organizational) expectations. We used to be the only game in town, but now we share it with the likes of Google, Amazon, Netflix, and Apple. Can we compete in an instant access, on-demand world? Do we need to? Will libraries continue to serve as the connection between people, information, and technology? Or will we be the next Blockbuster or Encarta, marginalized to extinction? What do we need to do in order to survive and thrive in this ever-changing, technologically robust era?
