Introduction
Introduction development: technical possibilities and cultural implications

“Public Libraries in the 21st century should be open when people want to use them, including evenings and weekends … library users should be able to get easy access to any book … getting expert help … on setting up their own community websites and taking part in the ICT revolution.”Baronness BlackstoneFramework for the future, 2003

Infrastructure development: technical possibilities and cultural implications

“functional mobile digital library systems will inevitably be built around robust and stable technical infrastructure”

Jones et al HCI Group, Cornell University, 2000


Supplier library cooperation
Supplier/Library Cooperation development: technical possibilities and cultural implications

  • Sharing and community over duplication and isolation

  • Reuse over reinvention

  • Openness and interoperability over exclusivity

  • Experimentation over certainty

Ubiquitous computing
Ubiquitous computing development: technical possibilities and cultural implications

“… represents the most explicit attempt yet to move computing beyond the confines of tool usage towards a pervasive penetration of human activities, with potentially far-reaching effects”

but needs to be

“based on non-intrusive availability”.

Arya 1995
