Fool's Gold: Why the Internet Is No Substitute for a Library

by

Fool's Gold: Why the Internet Is No Substitute for a Library Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This work skeptically explores the notion that the internet will soon obviate any need for traditional print-based academic libraries, and makes a case for the librarys staying power in the face of technological advancements.

Book News Annotation:

Herring, who is dean of library services at Dacus Library Winthrop U. (Rock Hill, South Carolina) has written a chilling work laying out how the abrupt and significant decline in reading can be linked to the concurrent rise of the electronic media. Herring concludes that if so few young people now know how to read well or consider reading books part of their daily lives, the future of books and libraries that contain books (as opposed to computers and other non-print media) is endangered. To support his argument, copyright laws and controversies, American K-12 reading methods, and current library development policies are discussed in detail.
