Have any of you read the works of Jorge Luis Borges? I haven’t had the chance yet, but he is a character in a delightful book I have read, Borges and the Eternal Orangutans by Luis Fernando Verissimo. I can’t remember if it his character or another that states, “solutions can always be found in libraries.”

BoingBoing posted yesterday on a paper written by New York Law School’s James Grimmelman, “Information Policy for the Library of Babel.” In it, Grimmelman likens Borges’s library to the Internet. He covers several LIS/KM topics including access, censorship, search, and information literacy.
