Open Access Wave of the Future

The Chronicle has an Interview with William Y. Arms , the guy who runs Dlib Magazine. He has some interesting things to say about the future of libraries. Mr. Arms says that once people are able to get all they need from the internet, they will stop going to the library, ease of access leads to use, and the library is harder to use.

\"I think it may be possible to have substantial research programs without access to conventional libraries\".

Some provocative stuff in this one.
