Exercise # 22

The heading on the article says it all for me "information wants to be free" as it epitomises the whole concept of empowering individuals by allowing freedom of access to information. Burning the books throughout history has been used as a way to repress people, but it seems as if with this new technology it is increasingly difficult for information to be suppressed. With the intelligent nurturing of parternship between librarians and library users, using all the modern tools at our disposal, the digital world indeed has the ability to create a brave new world.
