Abstract

Introduction

Since the days of the Library at Alexandria, libraries have been offering information, advice and a place to study. In more recent years with the increasing move to electronic publications and the explosion of information available via the internet, various voices have announced the demise of the physical library and its relevance to the modern learning experience.
