know of any cool libraries?

know of any? looking for some inspiration.

Buildings? Collections? Throw us a bone here!

sorry about that. buildings, the architecture- i was reading an article on the recent seattle public library and became interested in the topic

The Kroch Library at Cornell is intereting. It’s about 10-15 years old, entirely underground, has some high-tech amenities, and a surprising amount of natural and natural-seeming light.

Some university libraries are practically getting rid of their books and making everything media-friendly with wireless, docking stations, videoconferencing facilities, etc. I recently read something like this about a library at U.T. Austin.

So, in a way, looking at both architecture and what’s happening to library content seems interesting. The whole library world is changing rapidly. In some ways, that’s where all the interesting information technology stuff is happening.
