A Short Thesis: The "Book Search" Process As a Harbinger for Revolution

February 21, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 153

In the pre-modern age, when computers and internet were not prevalent or not discovered it was tougher for people to share or gain knowledge. For scholars of those ages it was a tough task to aggregate knowledge, especially given the variety of languages in which knowledge abounds. The time it took for scholars to get their hands on specific paperback copies of books was substantial, and in addition to that a research endeavour involved searching through multiple books. The combination of the search process itself and the time taken to acquire paperbacks made the research process for the scholar a daunting one. A result of this laborious process was: people started thinking of ways to make the book search process more efficient. With the advent of computers and internet came the advent of the online library. This has been one of the greatest gifts to students. Now, students can search books of importance sitting at any place without wasting valuable time. This is just one example showing the need of an efficient book search process.

The other example that exemplifies the need for the efficient "book search" process is the innate thirst for information by human beings. Now it is virtually impossible for a person to get hold of paperback versions of all the books in print. Before the advent of online libraries people's knowledge frontier was limited due to a lack of options. Now, with the click of a button the world of books open up. To search for books of choice has never been easier. The unique search procedure available in these online libraries has saved time and improved the book search process immensely.

The last example I will discuss that highlights the need for an efficient book search process touches on core areas of the society such as law and religion. In days of yore, the intellectual and religious elite kept the common man in perpetual economic and religious/spiritual slavery as a result of the scarcity of paperbacks. From the Catholic Church, to the English Christian establishment of the 10th through 13th centuries, stories abound of concerted attempts by the ruling class to maintain dominion over the populace through the restriction of mass Bible publications. It could be argued that the book search process is the harbinger of development. In the days of old the search and eventual discovery and mastery of knowledge was a precursor to revolutions across Europe. Today, we are in a new phase of the book search process. The internet, the online library, the social libraries have taken the book search process to a new frontier. As history as previously shown, we are probably on the cusp of another revolution. The question is what type of revolution?

To enjoy the world of books visit and search books of interest. The varied collection of books and documents present in is definitely worth perusing in our pursuit of this next revolutionary wave.
