English abstract

The evolution of libraries through three stages –modernization, automation and digitization- is analysed. A formula is presented to evaluate the importance of libraries to our society, and it is applied both retrospectively and futuristically, extrapolating a 2030 scenario. The conclusion is that if the current generation of librarians does not introduce radical changes in the role of libraries, their future is seriously threatened.

Spanish abstract

Se analiza la evolución de las bibliotecas en sus tres etapas de modernización, automatización y digitalización. Se presenta una fórmula para evaluar el grado de interés que las bibliotecas tienen para la sociedad, y se aplica tanto retrospectivamente como para extrapolar el posible escenario del año 2030. Se concluye que si la generación actual de bibliotecarios no es capaz de introducir cambios radicales en el papel de las bibliotecas, su continuidad está seriamente amenazada.
