Recording of Gary Marchionini's Distinguished Seminar Series Presentation, "Libraries as Read/Write Services," Now Available
In this presentation, Dean Marchionini talks about the blurring of boundaries between personal and public digital libraries as libraries begin to assume a larger role as institutional repositories for personal collections, such as family photographs. He also discusses the convergence of two trends that are driving foundational shifts in libraries of the 21st century:
- A strengthening focus by individual libraries on their unique collections, including local materials, and
- People increasingly working, playing, and living with the aid of electronic technologies that create traces of life's behaviors through things like tweets or digital images.
