Public libraries without the bookshelves

(25 May 2013)  The Digital Public Library of America quoting the BBC reports: “The first purpose-built ‘bookless’ public library is due to open in Texas later this year and in the US capital, the first virtual reading room replaces books with computers and smart technology. Some of the nation’s most famous institutions are also collaborating in a massive online project – the Digital Public Library of America – a single digital access point for information about the nation’s historical treasures.”
