Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

"What we are witnessing in the remaking of the library at the end of the twentieth century is not so much a technological revolution (which has already occurred) but the public reinvention of intellectual community in its wake," remark the editors in their introduction to this collection of ten essays. Indeed, these essays, written by librarians, historians, computer scientists, lawyers, linguists, and architects, open a wide perspective on the implications for libraries and their users of new ways of encountering knowledge and information. This perspective does not ignore the past: Roger Chartier, for example, contributes a compendium of Renaissance bibliographies. Much attention is given to the new Bibliotheque Nationale de France, one essay focuses on the new San Francisco Public Library, and another on the resurgence of Eastern European libraries. Perhaps most fascinating is Anthony Vidler's analysis of the aesthetic and ideological significance of the architectural design of the new French national library. All but one of the essays?Robert Berring's account of the changing work of librarians?originally appeared in a special issue of the journal Representations (Spring 1993, No. 42). Librarians, scholars, and informed readers will appreciate the provocative discussions included here.?Dean C. Rowan, Whittier P.L., Cal

"This work is a philosophical look at the rise of digital libraries and some of the ramifications inherent in the move towards digital access and storage of information."--"Journal of Academic Librarianship
