Barbara Fister on Library 2.0 and the culture of reading
Check out Barbara Fister’s thoughts on Library 2.0 and the culture of reading in her posting on the ACRL blog. She refers and links to a discussion in the mainstream press which I have been neglecting, about how the medium of the web is affecting reading and book culture. This discussion involves Kevin Kelley, Lee Gomes, and John Updike. Her discussion of Library 2.0 issues is sensible and summarizes some of the basic questions.
