When you shouldn’t be afraid.

I lis­te­ned to this while wri­ting this post, try it while you read :o)

This is the twen­ty-eighth in a series of posts reflec­ting on our willin­gness to remem­ber and the qua­li­ty of that know­ledge. These posts should be read in order of publi­ca­tion. Star­ting with num­ber six, for example, would make no sense to the rea­der. Hap­py reading!

So, how do you do it? How do we ensure that the rele­vant lite­ra­ture out­lives us? Libra­ries are inter­es­ting, but their mis­sion is not ali­gned with my pro­ject. A libra­ry has an edu­ca­tio­nal mis­sion and a cultu­ral mis­sion first and fore­most. Howe­ver, this mis­sion is not natu­ral in people’s minds. For many, a libra­ry is a place where you can find writ­ten content that you want, but not neces­sa­ri­ly need. This ali­gns per­fect­ly with the mis­sion of the libra­ry. Giving people what they want. It is the­re­fore a lei­sure ser­vice before it is a know­ledge ser­vice. So who’s in charge of know­ledge? The Inter­net has obvious­ly down­gra­ded libra­ries in terms of lei­sure, because libra­ries are not enough. When it comes to know­ledge, it is easy to unders­tand why so many people read on the Inter­net, libra­ries have fai­led in their lack of vision.

The concept of a libra­ry must the­re­fore be rein­ven­ted. Libra­ry, from the Latin biblio­the­ca (“room or piece of fur­ni­ture contai­ning books”), itself bor­ro­wed from the ancient Greek βιβλιοθήκη, biblio­thế­kê (“place of depo­sit of books”). There are a mul­ti­tude of books in the world, but if we were to label our libra­ry as “know­ledge”, would this not be an indi­ca­tion that the pri­ma­ry mis­sion of this ins­ti­tu­tion would be to focus pri­ma­ri­ly on the object of know­ledge, rather than on the words cho­sen to des­cribe that knowledge?
