This article has some great quotes and observations which show up more and more in the debate over the future of libraries. Here's one of them:

"..........Part of it is that the library's focus has changed, and I think in some ways the library is reverting back to the library as it should have always been — as a service point rather than a great collector," said Mike DiCarlo, Louisiana Tech's Dean of Library Services.

"In the 19th and 20th centuries, collecting was important. Now the library becomes more of a service organization helping the researcher find and navigate material in the electronic age."
