Research and academic libraries, as well as academic publishers, belong to the sub-category of the infosphere known as “Institutions of Knowledge.” Libraries, however, have made few contributions to the development and utilization of the Internet, and now face a situation in which Google is replacing libraries as the primary research destination of scholars and students. The theories of leading Czech contemporary philosopher, Miroslav Petricek, may provide a construct for better understanding such developments and providing pathways for situating and developing library products and services within these new infosphere realities.
