ATOMS VS BITS 

   Regarding  electronic catalogues, Don Tjossem writes: "I would 
   compare the electronic media to books as I would books to 
   stone.  People used to write on stone, then there came books 
   and now there is the electronic media , which can be preserved 
   on hardrives and disks.  I'll bet in a few years (20-30)  books 
   may be as scarce as hen's teeth.  Why even in my college library 
   I see them removing the "stacks" of books and replacing them 
   with computers for research.  What do you think??"
