From the White House conferences and the golden age of libraries to challenges forlibraries in the age of digital information

Abstract:

Librarians were excited about the two White House conferences in the late twentieth century. The increases in library funding from the conferences have slowed as the economy has declined, while the improvements to connectivity brought by the growth of the Internet had a dramatic and positive impact on libraries. Publishers and librarians are using information technology to deliver information in new formats, and both are struggling to create pricing models that will maintain the health of each sector.
