\"Will Libraries Survive?\"
Geoffrey Nunberg argues in this article that they certainly will, and he is hi tech enough to be a major researcher at the Xerox PARC lab (he is a linguist.) This article is a couple of years old but still feels fresh. It provides a nice bird\'s eye view of American libraries and how they fit into the whole contemporary \"information\" landscape. He addresses many of the problems that libraries are beginning to face in the current situation and has suggestions for how they can be dealt with.
