Why We Can't Afford Not to Create a Well-Stocked National Digital Library System

Interesting blog post on The Atlantic magazine web site by David 
Rothman, "the founder of TeleRead, the oldest English-language 
site offering general e-book news and views."

"Might the time have finally come for a well-stocked national 
digital library system (NDLS) for the United States? That's the 
topic of this essay, and many of the same concepts could apply to 
other countries, including Canada, the UK, France, Germany, 
Italy, Australia, Japan, China, India, Brazil, and various other 
nations. Perhaps national digital library systems could 
interconnect, forming a global one. But for simplicity's sake and 
reasons of self interest, I'll focus here on a digital system for 
the United States."
