"Copyright rules will need to be reformulated to allow this to happen,
and public-private partnerships, as well as public investment, will be
necessary to realise our vision in a challenging financial climate."
"And what of the future of the physical library building? Some might
suggest that bricks and mortar no longer have a place in the digitally
connected world, but nothing could be further from the truth. As we
know at the British Library, a sense of place in the digital world is
an incredibly important and scarce resource. Libraries provide a space
for the exchange of ideas, collaborative working and public discourse.
Camaraderie, community and the solidarity of experience among library
users are also evident from those working in or around our reading
rooms. Digital "companionship" is important, but it is not sufficient
to create a vibrant, democratic and intellectual community."
