Americans tend to embrace new technologies and assume they are revolutionary. We believe that any new technology may be a silver bullet that renders obsolete our previous ways of doing things. We sometimes cling to those beliefs in the face of contradictory evidence. A current example of this kind of thinking is the notion that libraries are no longer necessary.Why do we have a perception that all information is becoming electronic?
