article description
I n parts one and two I reexamined my “10 Reasons Why the Internet Is No Substitute for a Library” (http://bit.ly/5oYnQb) in an effort to see where I went wrong, or right, as the case may be. On balance, critics notwithstanding, the article holds up well against the empirical data, less so against what one hopes the Internet will be (but isn’t yet). Herewith, are some concluding remarks about this brave new, digital world.
