Despite all our technical and technological achievements, at the beginning of the third millennium our libraries are still only providing traditional, common services and procedures. Even if libraries have websites, these are typically used as a bulletin board describing their services. However, they do not provide their services barrier-free. Libraries stand or fall by their catalogs and the only real change from the past has been computerization. How are libraries in the coming years and decades to evolve? Do they have the potential to survive? Is the existence of the services and the physical space of libraries really irreplaceable? Who is the librarian of the future? Is he a socially competent compassionate person or an IT specialist?
Together we will ask these and other questions and search for the answers at the 7th annual Digital Library conference.
