My Columns

“Building Digital Libraries”

I am a columnist for Computers in Libraries magazine, on the topic of building digital libraries. The premise of the column is that digital libraries are in fact a collection of services, artifacts, functionalities (and not least) people, and that they must be understood in many contexts beyond the merely technological sphere.
