Further reasons: Today, I estimate that we have ca. 4.000 libraries worldwide working with RFID. Can RFID help us to mobilize information pinpoint (space- related)?We are privileged tobe here, means ourduty to theinterested non-participants.

British Library predicts switch to digital by 2020 Lynne Brindley (CEO, British Library, 2005) „Most people are aware that a national switch to digital broadcasting is expected by the end of this decade. Less well known is the fact that a similar trend is underway in the world of publishing: by the year 2020, 40% of UK research monographs will be available in electronic format only, while a further 50% will be produced in both print and digital. A mere 10% of new titles will be available in print alone by 2020. „
British Library predicts switch to digital by 2020 British Library’s 2020 Vision We estimate that by 2020, 75% of all titles worldwide will be published in digital form only, or in both digital and print.
