Description

Title:Cultural Tenacity within Libraries and Publishers
Author(s):Jensen, Michael
Subject(s):Digital libraries
Books -- Digitization
Abstract:Libraries and book publishers coevolved during the period of information scarcity, and developed cultural traits that are affecting their strategies in the new era of content abundance. Both industries are under threat. The author examines the interdependencies, the similarities, and the different agendas of the two cultures; explores likely speciation within the new ecosystems; and frames reasons for both optimism and concern for the near future.
