Practical Digital Libraries: Books, Bytes, and Bucks
"While others speculate on the organizational dilemmas facing libraries and universities in a digital information environment or argue the relative philosophical merits of print versus digital media, Lesk has constructed an on-the-ground picture of the various working components of the digital environment. Viewed as a whole and with an engineering sense of composition, his picture is remarkable--almost astonishing--because it reveals how advanced the digital environment has truly become."
--Donald J. Waters
