Year 2020 - Online is In and Paper is Out:
Let us assume by the year 2020:
-- All content required for teaching, learning and research is available online.
-- 24/7 Access is available for free or fee.-- Online content is well indexed and rated.
-- Vendors provide single point access to premium content andorganized free content.
-- Access is available at a cost, which is less then 10 % of the totaleducational cost of a postgraduate student.
What would be shape [should I call future?] of Academic and Research Libraries?
Any wild guesses?
Let us dare to imagine.
