“The library is changing its subscriptions from print journals to electronic delivery of those same periodicals wherever possible. Burkes first digital book collection joins other monographs but is stored online rather than on the shelves.
Online resources like WorldCat can locate books in libraries all over the world, supplanting the unwieldy and quickly outdated volumes of the National Union Catalog and other national directories.
Even the Archives and Special Collections are being transformed as library staff have begun scanning rare items and making them available online.
And, of course, that card catalog of yore has been succeeded by ALEX the speedy, flexible online catalog that allows users to customize searches in hundreds of ways and doesnt fold, spindle or collect a palimpsest of grimy fingerprints.”
