The University of Chicago has revealed how its automated, robotic Joe and Rika Mansueto Library will work.

The building, a mammoth sunlit elliptical dome fashioned from glass and steel, has no books, aisles or shelves to peruse. Instead it sits on top of a 50-foot-deep storage vault which archives the library's millions of volumes.

I think the future of libraries be like the Chicago library, What do members think?
I want to go ahead of Father Time with a scythe of my own.

Yea i think a lot of storage is going this way, not just libraries. Like the video stated - they took the idea from current modern storage facilities. Makes sense too. Efficient, saves a LOT of space which means more information for libraries and more storage for businesses (and more money for storage facilities).
