iThèque, media libraries and electronic online resources

Open letter

iThèque answers a simple fact : stagnation, as in regular decrease of the amount of discs loans in French libraries. This phenomenon also happens out of France: Belgium's media library's amount of audio CD loans is decreasing regularly.

The budget situation of our establishments is not allowing us to massively increase the CD acquisitions. To enlarge the offer could be the temporary answer to this fact.

For us, it appears a necessity to overcome this difficulty linked essentially to a change of format; the exponential increase of music files downloading (legal or illegal) clearly shows a radical change of habits amongst the users.

This fast appearing change of uses deeply affects our establishments. One of the necessary answers lies in the creation of distant services.

If formats are un-materializing, it should also be the case of our establishment services and parts of collections.

iThèque is one of the answers we need.
