Ubiquitous access, convergence of technologies and increased bandwidth are features of the new information world. A simplistic digital divide has given way to complex digital divides, of access, skill and choice. Terms such as the virtual, digital, hybrid or recombinant library represent successive attempts to encapsulate the impact of the Internet on library and information management. Rather than competing visions, they seem to emerge as complementary models that coexist in an increasingly complex context of technology and standards in the management of information resources. This article discusses the implications of the blurring of boundaries between established categories of information resources for information professionals.
