From shelves to computers In Sri Lanka

What does the Digital Age hold for the country’s libraries? A National Conference on Library and Information Science held earlier this month In Sri Lanka, discussed the issue with some fascinating results.
While many may not be able to see past the end of libraries as we know them, the potential in digital libraries is actually tremendous. These libraries could exist on the World Wide Web – no longer the prisoners of location. Books would no longer need to be printed – with all the cost and consumption of paper that implies. Circulation could be accomplished with a few clicks of a button.
