Hearts, Minds, and the Library's Physical Space
Huwe, Terence K.
Computers in Libraries, v30 n8 p29-31 Oct 2010
The digital era has revolutionized society's perception of space. Even so, against this backdrop, the struggle to preserve and enhance library space is a battle for the hearts and minds of the communities. It is ongoing, and it will never end. In this article, the author explores two characteristics of successful drives to revitalize physical space and offers some strategies for keeping spirits high during the skirmishes libraries are sure to face along the way. He believes that when library physical space is overlaid with a robust digital backbone, it transcends its original purpose and creates endless opportunities for creativity.
