This is National Library Week
"Without libraries, what have we? We have no past and no future."
"The question for scholars and gatekeepers is not whether change is coming. It is whether they will be among the change-makers...Who else will ensure long-term conservation and search abilities that are compatible across the bibliome and over time? Who else will ensure equality of access? Ultimately, this is not a challenge of technology, finances, or ultimately even laws, difficult though they are. It is a challenge of will and imagination."
