This is not a bad thing. In fact, the surge in self-publishing, ...
technology and business process in which new copies of a book (or other document) are not printed until an order has been received. "Print on Demand" developed only after digital printing began, because it was not economical to print single copies using traditional printing technology such as letterpress and offset printing .

Museum-owned material that was once rarely viewed by the public is now accessible via the web. Therein lie many problems.
