I just read a blog from one of my subscriptions. It was regarding research. As I read it, I thought more about my college days. My questions is, what’s up with libraries today? I know they still exist, but what’s their purpose?
I don’t read much nor did I do a ton of research, but when I needed to do so, I remember going to the campus library. Grabbing books noted in the catalog, or magazines or note, or even MICROFICHE. Do yall remember microfiche? Did yall use one of those things?
But anyway, who uses libraries today? I can only think that people go there now for “pleasure”. Not necessarily for research. But even in today’s digital world, you have books online from places like audible.com that allows you to download them to your mp3 players. It’s like the internet has EVERYTHING now, so one can reference mostly any web link. Books are online, magazines are online, several 1000 newspapers, etc. Even videos are available.
Thanks for readin, yall.
