We’re turning up the burners on this week’s Article of the Week. “No Room for Books” chronicles the University of Denver’s “repurposing” of library space in their ongoing remodel. To make room for technology and student interaction, Penrose Library will only bring back 20% of its print collection. Is this a library?
Is this a stunt or trend, we’d like to know!
Middle English librārie, from Anglo-Norman, from Latin librārium, bookcase, from neuter of libraries, of books, from liber-, book.
