Who needs books these days?
From the Chronicle Packing Up the Books: The University of Texas at Austin is clearing its undergraduate library of nearly all books to make way for computers and a coffee shop, and other colleges are making similar moves. (The Chronicle, free link) Join a live, online discussion with Frances J. Maloy, president of the Association of College and Research Libraries, about the pros and cons of moving books and journals out of libraries to make more room for computers and technology services, on Thursday, June 30, at 1 p.m., U.S. Eastern time. Questions can be submitted in advance, and a transcript will be posted after the discussion
