Some questions asked by economy to libraries (and vice versa)

Library economy is rather forgotten in France. It takes part in two separate trends : information economy and culture economy. Within this framework, reading can be analyzed in the same time as a consumption, as a production of service, as the accumulation of a capital and at last as the communion of the héritage. But there is still a lot to do for the economists to be able to supply librarians with main tools able to help to their development.
