Librarian, Robot | ALA TechSource | Library Robotics | Scoop.it

I’ve got robots on the brain lately. Slate.com ran an interesting series about robots replacing even highly educated knowledge workers. No sooner did I finish the last piece (about robots replacing scientists) than I picked up the September 15 issue of Library Journal, featuring a library robot on the cover. Clearly, the robots are coming.

British Library enlists robots for new low oxygen newspaper archive - Wired.co.uk

British Library enlists robots for new low oxygen newspaper archive - Wired.co.uk | Library Robotics | Scoop.it

British Library enlists robots for new low oxygen newspaper archive Wired.co.uk This article was taken from the September 2013 issue of Wired magazine. The British Library has 750 million pages of newsprint spanning 300 years, and although it digitises some four million pages a year, it'll be 188 years at that pace before the whole collection is accessible on an iPad. To keep the news rags of a bygone era in circulation, the library has built a storage facility in Yorkshire with a microclimate specially created for ageing newspapers: low oxygen to prevent fires, low humidity to prevent rot. But low oxygen also means no people. Once the collection moves in 2014, humans will be locked out and requested papers will be delivered by a robotic shelving system.
