Do Libraries Still Matter? A paper by seven librarians appointed by the president of the American Library Association (entitled Toward a Conceptual Foundation for a National Information Policy) said America must “reaffirm its mandate to its publicly supported libraries to seek out and deliver to all people the information they need or desire...All information must be available to all people in all formats purveyed through all communication channels and delivered at all levels of comprehension.” For good measure, the paper added: “All information means all information,” and “everyone means everyone.”
