Arisan Wacana “Pro Kontra Pentingkah Perpustakaan pada Era ini?”


Perpustakaan merupakan institusi yang mengumpulkan pengetahuan tercetak dan terekam yang dikelola dengan cara khusus guna memenuhi kebutuhan intelektual. Pada era ini, peran perpustakaan terkadang dianggap  mampu tergantikan oleh perkembangan internet. Hal tersebut terkait dengaan minat baca masyarakat terhadap E-book yang meningkat setiap tahunnya. Masyarakat tentunya memerluakan ruang kuntuk memenuhi kebutuhan intelektualitas yang pada hakikatnya dapat dipenuhi oleh perpustakaan umum. Namun tidak dapat dipungkiri bahwa internet juga memiliki kelebihan dalam pemenuhan kebutuhan intelektualitas tersebut.

Bagaimana seharusnya kita sebagai mahasisawa(i) menanggapi persoalan tersebut??

Menurut fitri Alifonita “Bahwa memang pada saat ini tidak sedikit orang berpandangan bahwa internet akan menggantikan perpustakaan karena begitu banyaknya akses internet yang bisa dilakukan dengan hanya mengklik beberapa ikon. Dengan seperti itu mungkin sebagian besar orang-orang akan berfikir bahwa tidak perlu lagi mengungjungi perpustakaan karena mereka dapat melakukan penelusuran online. Tapi pada kenyataaannya “TIDAK” internet tidak dapat menggantikan perpustakaan. Masing-masing memiliki peran yang penting. keduanya internet dan perpustakaan dapat berdampingan satu- sama lain. Perpustakaan seharusnya mampu melakukan transformasi untuk merespon perkembangan lingkungannya yang semakin banyak digerakkan oleh teknologi. Perpustakaan memiliki atau menyediakan banyak informasi yang tidak tersedia di internet. Jadi gambaran umumnya perpusatakaaan akan selalu ada di masa lalu, masa kini, serta masa yang akan datang dan tentu saja perpustakaan ini akan berevolusi sejalan dengan perkembangan IPTEK. Yakni ada perpustakaan versi fisik(tempat) maupun perpustakaan melalui media internet”

Selain itu menurut beberapa ahli perpustakan tidak dapat digantikan oleh internet karena:

  1. “Perpustakaan sebagai tempat untuk tumbuh kembangnya individu, melakukan penemuan kembali, dan tempat berkumpul untuk meningkatkan keterlibatan masyarakat dalam proses politik dan isu-isu yang berpengaruh terhadap mereka”~ Luis Hererra
  2. “perpustakaan umum memiliki era vital sebagai penghubung orang-orang dengan kesenjangan ekonomi dan sosial untuk mengakses atau menggunakan ilmu pengetahuan, informasi dan teknologi komunikasi dan mengajarkan orang tentang bagimana memperoleh informasi yang terpercaya melalui internet. Kita tetap membutuhkan perpustakaan meskipun kita memiliki akses yang sangat luas untuk mendapatkan informasi dari internet. ~ Ian Clark

Selain itu pada dasarnya perpustakaan sebagai tempat yang tidak hanya digunakan untuk mendapatkan buku tetapi sebagi tempat interaksi sosial secara langsung dengan orang-orang baru yang tentu saja tidak kita temuka di internet dan juga dengan adanya interaksi antar dua orang atau lebih kita dapat berdiskusi dan bertukar pikiran  sehingga kita dapat memperoleh  pengetahuan yang baru yang dimana itu tidak akan terjadi apabila kita hanya mengakses internet. Dan juga di perpustakaan tidak mudah untuk mengakses situs porno maupun situs radikalisme yang sangat mudah kita dapatkan melalui internet dan tentu saja mengunjungi perpustakaan tidak akan membutuhkan biaya seperti halnya mengakses internet.

Pada intinya keduanya memiliki peran yang masing-masing penting terhadap kehidupan masyarakat selebihnya kita yang memisahkan antar benar dan salahnya, dan apapun itu tidak ada yang dapat menggantikan sesuatu, kembali lagi kepada kebutuhan manusianya apakah dia butuh perpustakaan atau butuh internet. Dan yah kita tidak akan hidup dengan banyak pengetahuan saat ini jika dulunya tidak ada tempat yang namanya perpustakaan sebgai penyimpan informasi.

People should educate themselves-you can get a complete education for no money.at the end 10 years, I had every book in the library and I’d written a thousand story” Pemilik perpustakaan pribadi
