your DIY library

June 11th, 2010 · No Comments · Uncategorized

In Do Open Academic Libraries Need Academic Librarians over at ACRLog, StevenB brings up MIT OpenCourseWare and its kin, notes the People’s Library set up outside the (closed past 8pm) CalState library by students who need a place to study (…ah, California, you were so hospitable to open-air spaces), and asks questions about what constitutes an academic library and what its OpenCourseWare equivalent would be.

Which makes me wonder — if you were to build your own library, from the ground up, without any need to defer to historical context or existing facilities, to serve….whatever needs you think a library does, or ought to, address…what would it look like? What is your library?
