Digital Convergence - Libraries of the Future: Libraries of the Future (Google eBook)
Springer Science & Business Media, Sep 20, 2007 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 448 pages
The convergence of IT, telecommunications, and media is changing the way information is collected, stored and accessed. This is mainly due to reducing cost, increasing quality, and increasing bandwidth. Digital information preserves content accuracy (e.g. digital television) in a way other systems do not. Information is ubiquitous and globally accessible, and can be held and accessed just as easily on a global network as on a local personal computer or in a local library. Devices are increasingly intelligent and are network-ready. User interfaces are more adaptable and flexible, and can be tailored to particular application domains. Digital intelligence is becoming seamless and invisible, enabling more attention to be paid to the content and the user’s interaction with it. This revolution is having effects on the development and organisation of information and artefact repositories such as libraries, museums, and exhibitions, and the way in which physical and digital aspects are mediated to users.
