J. C. R. Licklider: Libraries of the Future (1965) (at Monoskop) - via worldedness.tumblr | offene Ablage: nothing to hide 2013-02-11

In this book J. C. R. Licklider discussed how information could be stored and retrieved electronically. Although he had not read Vannevar Bush’s “As We May Think,” he realized that Bush’s ideas had been diffused through the computing community enough to have provided a base for his own ideas. His theoretical information network, which he called a “procognitive system” sounds remarkably similar to Tim Berners-Lee’s World Wide Web: “the concept of a ‘desk’ may have changed from passive to active: a desk may be primarily a display-and-control station in a telecommunication-telecomputation system-and its most vital part may be the cable (‘umbilical cord’) that connects it, via a wall socket, into the procognitive utility net”. This system could be used to connect the user to “everyday business, industrial, government, and professional information, and perhaps, also to news, entertainment, and education.” (source)

Based on a study sponsored by the Council on Library Resources, Inc., and conducted by Bolt, Beranek, and Newman, Inc., between November 1961 and November 1963.

Der durch die Erhöhung der Haushaltssperre bedingte finanzielle Einbruch entzieht der Bibliothek nunmehr die Grundlagen zur angemessenen Erfüllung ihres gesetzlichen Auftrags. Er erzwingt umfassende Abbestellungen von Zeitschriftenabonnements und Einschnitte in der Bucherwerbung sowie einen weitestgehenden Verzicht auf den für die langfristige Nutzbarkeit von Medien unentbehrlichen Einband. Dies hat auch eine Existenzbedrohung von Buchbinder-Werkstätten zur Folge. Die Erwerbung von Handschriften und alten Drucken – ureigener Auftrag der Bibliothek zur Sicherung des kulturellen Erbes des Freistaates – muss nahezu vollständig eingestellt werden.
