For the last 150 years academic libraries have seen themselves as information-centred storehouses of books and I think that was a mistake ... We need to return to the original purpose of the library, which is to support all the various needs of the scholar and provide him or her with a place to come up with ideas and make breakthroughs that would not otherwise have happened.
