CHE SIA ARRIVATO il momento di inserire il self publishing digitale (il fenomeno “indie”) a catalogo delle biblioteche? Ci sono argomenti interessanti per sostenerlo.
Money quote: “Libraries have come a long way since the early days of limited archives etched into tablets — made of clay, not pixels and paper — shared with a select group of elite society. 18th-century France ushered in the truly democratized library as we know it today, with the Bibliothèque Nationale offering hundreds of thousands of printed books and manuscripts to the general public, regardless of financial means or education. Since then, libraries have strived to keep up with and serve public interests, including one of the more recent developments spawned by the digital age: eReading.”
