Institutions developed during the industrial era are being transformed to meet the requirements of our emerging post-industrial civilisation. Workplaces, transport systems, and health and social institutions have all experienced restructuring to meet the new needs of a changing culture. A recent local example is the transformation of libraries into learning and information centres (LINCs) to combine previously separate services and to reflect new ways of communicating and acquiring information via electronic systems. The industrial era created a host of institutions to control and develop our lives. In keeping with industrial philosophy these institutions tended to be regimented, routine, and paternalistic in the delivery of services in order to achieve conformity and economies of scale.
