The Digital Public Library of America: Why Library and Information Students Should Care

    I like our school library the way it is. I just hope that with the rising popularity of digital libraries and such won't kill the legacy the library has brought to us.

       I hope not either.  Still, I don't necessarily see the rise of digital libraries as so much a threat/replacement to traditional library spaces, but rather a way to enhance them and facilitate connections in knowledge!

         i agree to your statement..Digital libraries can't "kill" institutional libraries just like virtual reference services didn't kill classic reference services. I think digital libraries are like a new way to enlarge the access to everybody!
