Book survival, particularly in the field of law, is faced with various challenges in this modern age of computer technology." Are law librarians at the crossroads where we have chosen non-book resources over books because of their superiority in content and value? Will books survive? Will only some types of books survive? These questions serve as fodder for futurists, happy solutions for financial woes of administrators, and concern of librarians about service, space, and, perhaps most important of all, their own survival.
