The more things change …

Friday’s quote of the day:

The pressures of rising publication, together with the dazzling potentialities of the electronic computer, are forcing librarians to think more quantitatively about their libraries than most of them ever have before and, simultaneously, have aroused the interest of the computer expert and the systems analyst in information storage and retrieval systems, of which the library is still the most successful exemplar.

From: Morse, P. McCord. (1968). Library effectiveness: a systems approach. Cambridge, Mass.: M.I.T. Press.

Forty years later, and we’re still trying to figure out how to adapt to the same pressures and potentialities.
