The Brave New World is already here

What is my alma mater doing??? I spent many hours in the UNSW library and loved walking through the stacks, browsing. The "serendipitous discovery" that Dr Golder talks about happened to me on countless occasions.

Whilst I do realise that there are changing needs and the wonderful possibilities that on-line resources provide, but I can't help but feel pangs of sadness and nostalgia. Perhaps a middle path can be struck, so that serendipity can still occur whilst the learning styles and needs for the newer generations of students can be catered for.
