Florida University Opens ‘Bookless’ Library

floridapolytechniclibraryThe Florida Polytechnic University has opened its doors for the semester with a new library, but the library doesn’t have any print books.

Instead, the new space designed by modernist Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, features a collection of 135,000 eBooks.

The Guardian has more: “‘Our on-campus library is entirely digital,’ said director oflibraries Kathryn Miller. ‘We have access to print books through the state university system’s interlibrary loan program.  However, we strongly encourage our students to read and work with information digitally.’”
