Exercise #22

As already discussed in Exercise #21, we searched Auckland City Library and Rotorua Library to see just how well they'd adapted to sending out information to certain sections of society.
I wonder how do you judge just who it is reaching, and the response to the new technology.
Is all this information only capturing a certain age group, and if so, how to introduce all of this to the people who will not even now, use a self-check machine.
I looked at a couple of the American Libraries sites in MySpace and teens slot but found it not very inspiring to carry on searching.
The question remains, just how safe is the Internet, with everyone pouring out their personal information. There is definitely a real need for privacy and protection.
I admit the new technology has it's place, but lets not loose the personal touch and the books themselves in the stampede.
