    • 21st Century Library Technology http://www.scottbot.net/HIAL/?p=9584 Atomization of knowledge resources, Ubiquity of Access, Multimodal Interfaces
    • What stayed the same? http://www.flickr.com/photos/spoinknet/8226203822Libraries provide a memory for cultural heritage & extend access from the few to the many
    • What has changed? http://blogs.sas.com/content/text-mining/files/2011/08/computer-head.jpgAnalogue & digital -- knowledge resources atomized -- access and dissemination one
    • Implications– Libraries to become digital memory institutions • The Bodleian is preparing for digital preservation– Libraries to understand better the connection between knowledge resource and the human • The Bodleian put the ‘reader’ in the centre of its strategic plan– Libraries to transform catalogues into context • The Bodleian is preparing for a semantic Oxford
    • Conclusion– Technology massively accelerated access and dissemination of knowledge resources and this somehow changed the nature of knowledge– Thus, libraries still are as facilitators of access and dissemination, and did not change their function – but they change their content
