Review Text

  • By A C Weber on September 4, 2015

    If you are interested in the whole library vs the web debate, this author has very insightful ideas and food for thought. I've already looked up a number of his references to read more. Well footnoted.

    This is a great book and is a "must read" for any librarian. I highly recommend it.

    Mark Herring makes some convincing claims in "Are Libraries Obsolete ?", that libraries are needed, because the services they provided are complementary to the resources available on the World WIde Web. In other words, given the current state of the Internet, it is essential to preserve access to library services and collections.Herring is an academic librarian, so his rationale for continuing to operate academic libraries is disturbing. They are needed to provide students with a quiet and convenient location for students to study and collaborate offline. If that is his best argument, then academic librarians are in serious trouble. It begs the question of why it is important to hire librarians with masters degrees, let alone Ph. Ds to staff academic libraries. A handful of paraprofessionals and security guards should be perfectly adequate to provide library access to students in the scenario he envisions.
