De nada, Teresa.

A este propósito, estou a ler um artigo muito interessante: The Library in the New Age. Ainda só vou a meio, mas pelo primeiro parágrafo já pode ajuizar o conteúdo:

"Information is exploding so furiously around us and information technology is changing at such bewildering speed that we face a fundamental problem: How to orient ourselves in the new landscape? What, for example, will become of research libraries in the face of technological marvels such as Google?"

Um beijinho para si também.
