useless, wrong, misleading books

The Impermanence of Knowledge 

IEEE Spectrum Magazine, March 2004

Now when I visit libraries I'm suspicious. I love the ambiance and even the
smell, but I'm wary about those books. In the fields that I know, I see
books that are obsolete and even wrong. Unfortunately, this is most of the
books. I think that a librarian should go through and remove those decayed
books. Maybe they should put a little sticker on the shelf for a
placeholder. "The book that previously occupied this space, (name of book),
has been judged to have become useless, wrong, and misleading."
