Lees, Francis C.
Journal of Library Administration, v19 n3-4 p147-54 1993
Describes the library at Rockefeller University and considers how it may be a model for future research libraries, i.e., the distributed library relying on remote resources. Highlights include resource sharing and interlibrary loan; research and scholarly interactions focused outside the library; decentralization of research information; and a campuswide data network.
