According to Umberto Eco, books share their fates with their readers. Carrying the idea forward, not only books but also libraries share their fates with their readers. The state of a society is well illustrated by the state of its libraries and how to access information resources. The aim of the presentation is to examine the impact of libraries and their services on the neoliberal economic environment and the expanding process of commodification. Nicholas Negroponte (MIT) stated in 2010 that the physical book will be dead in five years. Although his provocative forecast has not been confirmed, the ratio of online resources in the acquisition of libraries is increasing. Technology companies have approached libraries to digitize their printed collection. Then the digital contents were sold, or used in accordance with their commercial interests to expand the advertising network. Information companies offered e-journals in large bundles for sale to libraries. Despite their promise, the price of digital publications has not become cheaper, but prices have risen steadily. The economic crisis of the early 2000s led to the closure of many public libraries. However libraries cannot become an information soup kitchen, where equal access to data and information hides the fact that there is inequality in access to meaningful information or important knowledge. The tasks of teaching library is not only to teach library and research skills, navigation on web, information retrieval from databases and how acting a law-abiding information consumer. Libraries can teach about information production and current information economics in part of information literacy. Libraries play a role in electronic publishing through their digital collections and repositories.
