Artikel verschwunden

Im Library Journal kommentiert Greiner das Verschwinden eines Times magazine-Artikels aus dem Netz. Greiner’s article is an excellent example of how someone can promote libraries by showing the importance they (and librarians) have in maintaining access to the historical record. It also demonstrates the increasing ease with which the historical record might be changed the more we rely on online databases owned and controlled by a small number of people. This means that libraries cannot simply be access points to remote commercial databases, but they must also continue to acquire and keep printed indexes and material, meint das Commons Blog.
