A new article in the Chronicle of Higher Education by Jennifer Howard (view article) talks about a new research report which discusses, "a growing ambivalence about the campus library" among faculty members as more and more knowledge goes digital.
"Since 2003, faculty members across the disciplines have shown a marked decline in how devoted they are to libraries as information portals. Eighty percent of humanities scholars are still devoted to library research—although that may be not because they're traditionalists but because they can't yet get what they need in digital form. But only 48 percent of economists and 50 percent of scientists value libraries as gateways."
What do you think? How do you view the Library?
