I sat in the futuristic auditorium surrounded by the great and good of the British Library. Above each pod was an electronic name tag that identified its occupant. Since they shared the same surname, I wondered whether the woman on stage was married to the one who was sitting next to me.

Henceforth all library and information science articles would be published in the same journal rather than scattered across a range of titles.
