Abstract

The production of knowledge is increasingly organised in networks and often tied to specific projects and problems of a temporary and fluid nature. In tandem with the change in the perception of learning and criteria for what 'god' knowledge is, this development will excert a strong influence on how we seek knowledge in the future. The article presume that, as a consequences, librraies will become more heterogeneous and follow different development paths from task to task. But the question is what characterises a traditional library versus a future library?
