A Truly Bookless Library
Kolowich, Steve
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v76 n5 p35-36 Jan 2011
The difference between the University of Texas at San Antonio's Applied Engineering and Technology Library and other science-focused libraries is not that its on-site collection is also available electronically. It is that its on-site collection is only available electronically. The idea of libraries with no bound books has been a recurring theme in conversations about the future of academe for a long time, and it has become common practice for academic libraries to store rarely used volumes in off-campus facilities. But there are few, if any, examples of libraries that actually have zero bound books in them. This article discusses the fact that more and more libraries are devoting less space to printed books, and are thus reimagining the physical space of the library.
