Transcript of E-books, libraries, layers and a new generation of library services

E-books, libraries, layers and a new generation of library services
new needs, new tools, new strategies,
new services, new opportunities
patterns of change
a new reading environment
reading and the digital ecosystem:
we still read a lot
we read different kinds of texts
we read in a different way

the main problem: fragmentation
the book and the digital
...but we also need
other kinds of complex textuality
the role of libraries
networks of contents and services
- not just preservation and access
(but preservation and access are still core services)
information literacy
readers empowerment
services for social reading
libraries as content producers
content producers?
layers, layers, layers
books are (usually)
textual objects
books are (usually) validated
books are (usually) immersive

"Only connect! That was the whole of her sermon. Only connect the prose and the passion, and both will be exalted, and human love will be seen at its height. Live in fragments no longer."
(E.M. Forster)
(or: why we
need eBooks)
"Nessun libro finisce; i libri non sono lunghi, sono larghi. La pagina, come rivela anche la sua forma, non è che una porta alla sottostante presenza del libro."
"Un libro non si legge; vi si precipita: esso sta, in ogni momento, attorno a noi."
Giorgio Manganelli
(and libraries
should understand and use them!
we need a new, complexity-oriented information literacy
layers as tools to build cultural bridges
