In Chicago, the future is now….
by Valerie Merians
A post on Wired.com points us to this amazing video of the University of Chicago‘s new, state-of-the-art , fully automated, Joe and Rika Mansueto Library,”The building, a mammoth sunlit elliptical dome fashioned from glass and steel, has no books, aisles or shelves to peruse. Instead it sits on top of a 50-foot-deep storage vault which archives the library’s millions of volumes.”
Watch, and be amazed!
