As originally Scooped by @Anne Whisken; I appreciate the points the author makes re: setting up a space where it's not "us" and "them" -- also appreciated his discussion of the Apple Stores and how that might work in a library space.

Sue Osborne's curator insight, August 13, 2015 10:55 PM

I like the observation that no matter what the desk looks like, the most important thing about a library desk is who staffs it!

Το Ώρχους (δανικά: Aarhus ή Århus) είναι η δεύτερη μεγαλύτερη πόλη της Δανίας.  Ο Δήμος του Ώρχους έχει περίπου 330 χιλιάδες κατοίκους και η μητροπολιτική περιοχή του Ώρχους περίπου 1,3 εκατομμύρια κατοίκους. Μοιάζει σε πολλά πράγματα με την Θεσσαλονίκη, ας πούμε στο Ώρχους βρίσκεται το μεγαλύτερο πανεπιστήμιο της Σκανδιναβίας. 

Στις βιβλιοθήκες όμως δεν μοιάζουμε !

In an Information Age and a Knowledge Era, libraries, along with educational institutions, have transformed the relationship they have with each other. Libraries are no longer spaces for storage of, or access to, volumes of information or for providing quiet spaces for students. Given access to information through the Internet and personal digital devices, the space and role of the school's library has had to re-invent or re-image itself to better respond to the learning needs within contemporary education.
