Libraries Competing Against The Internet
from the gotta-keep-up dept
It seems with high speed internet connections in every dorm room, and more and more research materials showing up online, it’s tough for the typical university library to keep up. So, they’re adapting to the digital age by adding all sorts of “extra” features to try to draw people out of their dorm rooms and into the library itself. These include things like Starbucks operating within the library itself, comfy chairs, and other things to make the whole library-going experience more social and less isolated.
