Here again the issues are broader than technology, costs, and the preferences of library users. Publishers, booksellers, authors, and, probably, intellectual property rights are also moving into a changed situation as electronic documents permit, in principle, a significant change in library collecting practices and in the use of library materials. A changed “industry” and new policies are to be expected.

Buckland, M. (1992). Redesigning library services: A manifesto (ch. 6).American Library Association. Retrieved from http://sunsite.berkeley.edu/Literature/Library/Redesigning/html.html.

Not sure whether to hail Buckland as a prophet or to put on my best Col. Jack O’Neill impression and say “Ya Think?” Maybe you should read Chapter 6 yourself and make your own choices.
