Designing a Space for Learning

"Only one thing seems to be missing in Miles’s school library – books, magazines or anypaper information source. The last print books – school yearbooks and some local history publications - were sent to Ghana to be digitized five years earlier. All those materials are now available online." From 'Mile's Library' by Doug Johnson
Also of interest is 'The Future of the Library' by Seth Godin
