School Library Design: Technology

Technology

"Computers are best interspersed throughout the library, but the expense of providing data and electricity connections usually limits the placement of computer workstations. Few schools can afford the luxury of a library so flexibly equipped with data drops that computers can be virtually anywhere. Even with wireless connectivity, electrical connections will still be needed. You will probably have to place computers in selected key areas of the library."

- Rolf Erickson and Carolyn Markuson, Designing a School Library Media Center for the Future
