What is the role of a library when users can obtain information from any location? And what does this role change mean for the creation and design of library space? Six authors—an architect, four librarians, and a professor of art history and classics—explore these questions in Library as Place: Rethinking Roles, Rethinking Space. In their essays, the authors challenge us to think about new potential for the place we call the library and underscore the growing importance of the library as a place for teaching, learning, and research in the digital age.
