Libraries have always dealt with value-loaded documents, yet have been able to maintain the libraries' value-neutral positions. Libraries provide access to information created by others, but they are not creators themselves -- that is the common understanding, or it was until recently. With development of information technology, various new tasks have been coming to libraries, some requiring new ways of interacting with documents. A new wave of changes accompany electronic text initiatives, positioning the library across at least three specialized fields: computer support, publishing and academic research.
