Description

Libraries used to be vertically integrated around their collections. Buildings housed them; expertise was devoted to arranging and interpreting them; and services managed them and made them available. In a network environment place, expertise, collections and services come apart in various ways. They influence one another but have their own trajectory in relation to diversifying user behaviors and expections.
