Via Media Bistro comes this story out of , where else, Texas
about a library, a UNIVERSITY library that will have one
thousand books in the actual library.
If you need an idea of how few 1000 books is check the comments
to my post titled "I confess. I don't have much of a library".
Here's part of the article.
Allison B. Smith, a junior who is majoring in public relations, seems nonchalant about the truckloads of books that have been pulling away from the library, destined for other campus buildings. She usually visits the undergraduate library just to check e-mail between classes. "I've never been here to get a book," she says.
"The way things are set up these days, it's kind of a hassle when you have to go into the library to get a book," she adds. "I can get just about everything I need, right at home, through UTnet," the university's high-speed digital network. If she needs a bound book, she says, she can always get it from another campus library.
These are the kids who'll be using Vid Lit (see earlier post) to buy books.
It's coming Snarklings, it's already in Texas.
Like Killer Bees.
