In search of a new normal …

… Coping With the Terrible Twins | Periodicals Price Survey 2012. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

I hadn't actually thought about this, but when you think of a library, you think of place where you go to pick up a newspaper or a magazine or  a book and sit down to read it (or, in the case of the book, check it out and take it home to read). What I hadn't thought about is that this sort of behavior must be changing along with everything else. Why should libraries stock newspapers if nobody is reading them? Maybe newspapers should start providing libraries with complimentary copies of the paper. I have no idea how this will ultimately play out. Probably nobody else does, either.
