Abstract: Since Chris Anderson first aired his concept of the emerging “long tail” market in an editorial in Wired Magazine in 2004, librarians have been contemplating its relevance to the future of information storage and access. Anderson’s long tail theory is an attempt to explain the changes that have occurred to markets as both the records of trade (that is, inventories and catalogues) and the traded items themselves, have become digital rather than physical (or in Anderson’s terms, bits rather than atoms).
