Le biblioteche dell’università hanno riscoperto negli ultimi decenni l’esigenza di porre al centro della loro azione il legame con gli atenei e nello stesso tempo si sentono impegnate in un profondo ripensamento del loro ruolo. I legami con il mondo accademico non sono sempre stati facili, come evidenzia questo saggio presentando l’evoluzione storica delle biblioteche dell’università, ricostruita a partire dalle origini sino ai più recenti scenari. Una particolare attenzione è dedicata ai profondi cambiamenti che stanno interessando il mondo scientifico e quello della didattica: l’utilizzo sempre più diffuso di Internet, diventato parte integrante della vita accademica, ha infatti introdotto importanti novità nell'ambito della comunicazione scientifica. Tra le più significative vi è il fenomeno dell’“accesso aperto” (Open Access o OA) ovvero la diffusione di articoli e di libri scientifici online in formato digitale e gratuiti. Le conclusioni propongono alcune riflessioni su modelli e tendenze emergenti per la biblioteca universitaria, sulla missione che è chiamata a svolgere in relazione alla sua storia e alla luce delle trasformazioni più recenti che hanno coinvolto la comunità scientifica.

A lot of professors give talks titled ‘The Last Lecture’. Professors are asked to consider their demise and to ruminate on what matters most to them: What wisdom would we impart to the world if we knew it was our last chance? If we had to vanish tomorrow, what would we want as our legacy? When Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give such a lecture, he didn't have to imagine it as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. But the lecture he gave, ‘Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams’ wasn’t about dying. It was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because time is all you have and you may find one day that you have less than you think). It was a summation of everything Randy had come to believe. It was about living. In this book, Randy Pausch has combined the humour, inspiration, and intelligence that made his lecture such a phenomenon and given it an indelible form. It is a book that will be shared for generations to come.

In A Walk in the Woods, Bill Bryson trekked the Appalachian Trail—well, most of it. In A Sunburned Country, he confronted some of the most lethal wildlife Australia has to offer. Now, in his biggest book, he confronts his greatest challenge: to understand—and, if possible, answer—the oldest, biggest questions we have posed about the universe and ourselves. Taking as territory everything from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization, Bryson seeks to understand how we got from there being nothing at all to there being us. To that end, he has attached himself to a host of the world’s most advanced (and often obsessed) archaeologists, anthropologists, and mathematicians, travelling to their offices, laboratories, and field camps. He has read (or tried to read) their books, pestered them with questions, apprenticed himself to their powerful minds.

Strange Pilgrims is a collection of unforgettable stories about distinctive South American individuals in Europe from the Nobel laureate Gabriel Garca Marquez author of One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera. 'The first thing Senora Prudencia Linero noticed when she reached the port of Naples was that it had the same smell as the port of Riohacha' The twelve stories here tell of Latin Americans adrift in Europe: a bereaved father in Rome for an audience with the Pope carries a box shaped like a cello case; an aging streetwalker waits for death in Barcelona with a dog trained to weep at her grave; a panic-stricken husband takes his wife to a Parisian hospital to treat a cut and never sees her again. Combining terror and nostalgia, surreal comedy and the poetry of the commonplace, Strange Pilgrims is a triumph of storytelling by our most brilliant writer. 'Celebratory and full of strange relish at life's oddness, the stories draw their strength from Marquez's generous feel for character, good and bad, boorish and innocent' William Boyd 'The most important writer of fiction in any language' Bill Clinton 'Often touching, often funny, always unexpected, the experience is as enriching as travel itself' New Statesman
