Abstract

The library profession remains grounded in textual, print media, creating vulnerability amidst a culture increasingly characterized as visual. This essay develops a model of visual ecology to facilitate full appreciation of the challenge presented by the emerging visual-interactive culture. Librarians must engage the tools and practices of visualization in order to capture, preserve, and disseminate today's culture for posterity.
