Food For Thought: Will Libraries Run Themselves?

In the Los Angeles Times Blowback Opinion article ‘Saving libraries but not librarians‘, Dan Terzian states,

“Libraries should embrace the digital revolution, even though it entails the loss of librarians. The purpose of libraries — the purpose of librarians — is to spread knowledge. The growth of the Internet changes how we pursue this purpose. We no longer need librarians in the same way and in the same number as before.”
