What an inspiring way to rethink what libraries are about!
Reid Wilson has created an amazingly simple visual, called Evolving library concepts. It’s a refreshingly new view on the evolution of libraries.
The visual includes sixteen open books. Each book puts one topic in focus, comparing two points of view. For instance, “place for books” versus “space for ideas.” Or “students look for authors” versus “students become authors.”
All concluded with a meaningful thought:
A library is not only a place for silent interaction with text. It can also be a space for dynamic interaction with thought.
