“The library will contain only books and paper journals. It will not have public access computer terminals. It will have a silent reading room, as well as a collaborative study room, in which laptops are allowed. There is no wired or wireless internet connectivity.
In return for all these restrictions, we will offer serene, quiet study/reading/research space, the best print collections money can buy, comfortable chairs and tables, and a return to the lovely, dusty book culture that some of us (and I think we’re still in the majority) remember, love, and think important.”
