More > publishing efforts on the Internet. Most sources have been published between 1990 and 2008; however, a limited number of key sources published prior to 1990 are also included.

The selection of items is impeccable. I have yet to find journal articles irrelevant to the scope of the bibliography. SEP could be used as a benchmark in evaluating abstracting/indexing databases that proudly claim to have coverage of electronic publishing, but do not come close to SEP."< Less

The question becomes: How do architects develop a design process geared to self-guided and interactive community learning, whose value is its ability to adapt to unpredictable change? Will the library of the future be considered a “Library” anymore?< Less
