Exclusivity

Our visitors from Project Projects posed the question: why are these projects in the library (instead of out reaching from it)?

To this I say, there is a fundamental paradigm shift in exclusivity which the library is embedded in. We are moving from exclusivity of content to exclusivity of experience. The library has been developed to provide exclusive content but now that this has been so radically destabilized by the internet, what the libraries have to offer is prime space for engagement. The library will best serve its community (academic, social, or otherwise) by providing unique experiences.
