Doug Greenberg has offered a stark characterization of the contrast between traditional library and Internet techniques of access:

If the key to the library’s power is its rigid, counterintuitive arrangement of static information in a comprehensible and hierarchical structure, the key to the Internet’s power is its flexible arrangement of dynamic information that permits the human mind literally to jump from one thing to another and back again with no more than stream of consciousness as a guide. It is anybody’s guess which of theses systems is better adapted to human creativity and curiosity.
