Cliff Lynch and the Future of Digital Libraries

If you haven’t read the latest issue of D-Lib let me point you to one article there – Cliff Lynch’s latest forecast. It is here. Here’s the conclusion:
“The next decade for digital libraries may well be characterized most profoundly by the transition from technologies and prototypes to the ubiquitous, immersive, and pervasive deployment of digital library technologies and services in the broader information and information technology landscape.”
He notes that digital library work now has a semi-mature set of tools, engineering approaches, and technologies and that we can now apply them to greater issues such as personal information management, human and computer relationships, collaborative work and the real work of learning and research.
It is worth the read.
