Princess Leia, An attempt to continue recent with the forces that will shape the future of research, the British Library staged an exhibition entitled the evolution of knowledge. The exhibition explores the evolution of search tools in the digital age and the sharing of visions of how future applicant’s knowledge interact with digital data.

The RayModeler is a prototype of a new type of screen 360 degrees auto-stereoscopic.

Sony Naoya Eguchi said he sees potential applications for the device in the field of medical research. He said the inspiration for the 1970 World RayModeler just science fiction.

“Princess Leia in Star Wars. It is a very famous movie,” he told Reuters Television. “But Star Wars is science fiction.”

Curator Matthew Shaw says the exhibition is intended to finally answer the question of what role the library should be in the digital age:

“Libraries have always stored information, stored, it identifies access to safe and then gave up and so on. It does not matter when you have ten million pounds, but if you have ten petabytes of information, it is a real problem. How do you keep that, how do you provide access? ”

Aleks Krotoski is an American journalist and academic who served as a researcher in residence during the exhibition.

“We say things like what is the role of research library and public library for future research? What should I do? How it first is a dead-tree repository? Or this will be a place where you know you’ll come (to) and find all the information that you need, whether digitized or not. Or simply disappear into the ether virtual? I do not think the latter, the last thing is true. I think it will evolve, “she said.

To this end, the library has opened access to a new archive of news reports in Britain that began six months ago.

And while Twitter messages are not yet officially under its jurisdiction, the British Library displays a series of “tweet meters” for nine major cities around the world. Although no indication of what the lines on the indicators relate, its art installation may be more a practical tool.
