In the New Model of the Research Library, Unused Books Are Out, Computers Are In.
Young, Jeffrey R.

Increasingly, colleges and universities are building warehouses for little-used library books, which can be delivered to campus on request. Warehousing saves money and provides better climate control for books. Scholars and students today have access to needed information through electronic databases and online catalogues, often from home, thus requiring less access to library stacks than previously. Some disadvantages remain. (MSE)
