From the Back Cover:

"While others speculate on the organizational dilemmas facing libraries and
universities in a digital information environment or argue the relative philosophical merits of print versus digital media, Lesk has constructed an on-the-ground picture of the various working components of the digital
environment. Viewed as a whole and with an engineering sense of composition, his picture is remarkable--almost astonishing--because it reveals how advanced the digital environment has truly become."

    --Donald J. Waters

    Associate University Librarian, Yale University
