As colleges ditch books, the future of the campus library is changing

“On college campuses across the United States, libraries are getting makeovers. And for many, that means moving away from physical books – the mainstay of libraries for thousands of years – in favor of other functions that college administrators say better fit the needs of the 21st-century student.One of the latest examples of this trend is the University of California, Berkeley’s Moffitt Library, which was recently remodeled to include wide-open meeting spaces for studying, a “nap pod” that students can use to take a break from the stressful college day, and glass walls designed to be written on for group projects.” (via CSMonitor.com)
