Paperless Society in Digital Era


Author(s): Kishor M. Dhumne

A Paperless society is a society in which paper communication is replaced by electronic communication and storage. The concept originated by Frederick Wilfrid Lancaster in 1978. Furthermore, libraries would no longer be needed to handle printed documents. "Librarians will, in time, become information specialists in a deinstitutionalized setting" (Lancaster & Smith, 1980). Lancaster also stated that both computers and libraries will not always give us the information that other people and living life will. Paper has been supplanted by digital media as a means of conveying secondary information sources including s, indexes, reviews, and reference volumes such as encyclopaedias and dictionaries.
