Becoming Digital

Diane Writes:This month\'s issue of Geotimes has a one page (p.5) comment from Sharon N.
Tahirkheli on \"Becoming Digital\" that is most intersting. She\'s Director
of Information Systems for the American Geological Institute.


She discusses the fact that some digital archivers consider adding only
originally digital material to their databases, ignoring digitised print
materials.
A quote: \"When libraries decide to eliminate unused books, it\'s called
weeding. Perhaps we\'re on the verge of weeding by default.\"
