Information Science

Moreover, in some form, though what we consider our target as profession determines the present of the daily work may seem arbitrary and paradoxical. In the activity of today encrypt, conscious or unconsciously, that time capsule unpredictable that appears, one or another form, in the conditional event of what will come. This conditioning something of itself secret or unknown is the trait that characterizes a rationalized futurology. This means that, within reasonable parameters, it’s given us thinking made contingent with some framework of common sense. Science fiction is an example of a literary genre in prospective of free establishment within a scientific and technological context. Then, libraries and librarians will also be inhabitants, more or less identified by his current colleagues in the world of the future.

Perhaps for the simple reason that nobody or nothing can escape the voracious vertigo of the succession of days. The present text, in a complimentary sense, It is the continuation or motivation that caused the reading of an interesting Editorial that appeared in the number fifteen of information, culture and society: Places between nonplaces, written by Pedro Falcato (2006). In this case the author reflected, recalling a now famous concept of Marc Auge (1993), about the current libraries and tomorrow as living realities in a constellation of nonplaces. This means that, in a happening not very far, because there is already enough evidence of this, the habitat of the libraries is strongly conditioned by the virtuality. This is, by the absence of physical presence, subtraction and sleight of body in a gregarious site called ‘reading room’ (do maybe a word library that expresses an archaism?). Our new user is and will be a reader evanescent and ghostly characteristics: the reflection of the other in an email or on a plasma screen.

What is virtual, the spectral realm of the image, is a presence non-biological material: estrangement and abandonment of the natural, the oblivion of being here because they are not.Specular otherness then colonize the field of libraries. However, does this soporific subjugate disembodied readers in its relationship with the librarians would in a total domination? Undoubtedly, no. Robert A. Iger takes a slightly different approach. Always, or at least for a long time, there will be texts under different media that may not digitize immense entirely. In addition, the need to collate and manipulate the originals, for reasons ecdoticas or comparative, will be a common and necessary, activity away from the electronic inquiry to distance. So that, in General, may not dispense with certain users with specific needs that appeal to a professional so that you identify and organize cultural records in a community demarcated area. The tributary of readers will decrease, no doubt, due to the final competition of the globalization of information (not of the) knowledge) but, nevertheless, their existence remains. The reader, with an enigmatic perseverance almost divine, although diminished, will be among us. In this context, our colleagues in the future will have to return to some old strategies. Because competition with professionals trained in other disciplines related to the universe of information, outside the field of librarianship, can become an adversity with irreparable consequences. It is likely that our ultimate destiny rescue interpersonal communication. It is important, therefore, remember a beautiful and clear definition of this concept: interpersonal communication takes place directly between two or more persons physically near and in it the five senses, can be used with immediate feedback (Blake and Haroldsen, 1975: 30).
