Is the age-old distinction between libraries and archives still valid in the digital age?

The article sets out to analyse the relationship between archives and libraries, which was clear and distinct until documentation arrived as a new category, blurring the boundaries. The author studies how the advent of the digital era shaped the way documents are produced, their status, quantity, and organisation, and how the life cycle of information has evolved. She concludes that technological and social changes have not abolished the frontier between the use and objectives of libraries and archives.
