This volume is the first to examine the social, cultural, and political implications of the shift from the traditional forms and functions of print-based libraries to the delivery of online information in educational contexts. Seeking a suitable term to designate this rapidly evolving and much contested development, the editors devised the word [email protected], and use the term arobase to signify the conditions of formation of new libraries within contexts of space, knowledge, and capital.

[email protected] are conceptualized as physical places, virtual spaces, communities of literate practice, and discourses of information work. This book brings together a distinguished group of scholars from a wide range of academic fields to explore the dislodgment of library discourse and practice from its longstanding apolitical, modernist paradigm.
