Clark Quinn

I go to libraries, and check out books. And some recent debates have got me thinking about libraries in general, public and university.

Libraries democratized access, by aggregating purchasing power.

The British Library has posted one million public domain images — images not subject to any copyright restrictions — at Flickr.
