PointCounterPoint: The Future of Libraries and Print

“In a digital landscape, the need to visit a library to obtain access to reference material is no longer necessary. Library spaces are increasingly used as public areas to work, discuss, present and share information and research.” –British Library, 2020 Vision

“[British Library Chief Executive] Dame Brindley said while Google was a significant research tool, printed matter remains the most precise research tool. ‘Google is great but there is no substitute for a library. The print world is far from dead and our print collection grows every year,’ she said.”
