In the race to find and fund the next technology, and distribute information in increasingly complicated streams, it's possible to ignore the philosophical underpinnings of change because we're trying so to hard to keep up. Let's pause to consider five essential issues that define our intellectual literary culture, and reflect on how libraries rise to this historical moment by answering these critical questions.
