Abstract

Curator Winfried Nerdinger claims that more libraries have been built in the last 20 years than ever before and that contrary to expectations of the 1960s, navigation of digital versus physical literature has not halted this progress. Just now, such a positive message rings more brightly close to Munich’s Glockenspiel than it might do amid the death knell of public libraries audible in Britain. Nevertheless, globally, a slideshow demonstrates that the idea of the library, as a physical embodiment of knowledge, is very much alive.
