Title:The future of the Romanian library
Author(s):Şerbănuţă, Claudia
Romanian Libraries
Abstract:Thanks to print and electronic technology and prompted by planetary issues of all kinds, everyone today is part of a global discourse. The Community Informatics Lab itself includes students and scholars from China, India, Iran, Iraq, Japan, and Syria, as well as the United States. And we see one of the tasks of community informatics as to help design the future of public computing, which includes the modern library. Accordingly, this Lab Note reflects the Community Informatics Lab as catalyst. A discussion in the lab encouraged the author, a future librarian and student of community informatics, to write this article for a publication in her home country (and language). We also encouraged her to translate it, knowing that other countries could learn from the experience of Romania, however unique it has been. An earlier version was published in Romanian in the weekly Dilema Veche (Old Dilemma) Cristina Stanciu, PhD candidate in the English Department at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, provided invaluable help with translation.
