The Library: Three Jeremiads by Robert Darnton

Robert Darnton, Harvard University professor and director of the Harvard University Library, outlines three problems facing the modern American research library and university: the decline of an economically viable market for most scholarly monographs published by university presses; the escalating prices of scientific journals and the role of open access journals; and the role of Google in a world of digital books and libraries. http://www.nybooks.com/articles/archives/2010/dec/23/library-three-jeremiads/
