Las bibliotecas han cumplido la función de colectar, conservar y socializar el conocimiento desde hace 5,000 años, afirmó el director de la biblioteca pública de Nueva York al anunciar su jubilación el pasado 18 de noviembre (Cohen, 2009). Sin embargo, en los últimos tres quinquenios, los cambios habidos son tan radicales que rivalizan con el “impacto Gutemberg”. Paul Leclerc cuenta que en 1993, cuando asumió el cargo de director, la biblioteca ni siquiera tenía una página Web que la representara fuera de sus límites territoriales. Hoy en día, --sostiene Leclerc--, la biblioteca pública de Nueva York atiende 18 millones de visitas territoriales y 26 millones de consultas mediante Internet. Dicha biblioteca cuyo acervo asciende a 50 millones de artículos y el catálogo más grande del mundo cuenta también con una biblioteca virtual en Segunda Vida.
