The estimates for the amount of materials available on the Internet are subject to some debate, but there is no doubt that it is growing at a phenomenal pace. Libraries have adjusted existing tools and created new ones to continue meet the goal of providing access to the best selection of virtual and physical resources for the community. What does the future hold for Cataloguing? Where does Z39.50 fit in an online world that seems determined to be powered by Internet search engines? What is the role of Web and XML-savvy standards like Docbook and OAI in library services? How should libraries use these technologies to promote resource-sharing?

Does anyone care about Z39.50? I mean really, give me a break. DocBook and OAI are relevant, I would even like to see cataloguing come up to date, but there are some things that libraries need to learn to drop.
