I stumbled onto this video of the book retrieval system at the University of Chicago’s Mansueto Library. ¬† I have to admit, when they showed the first picture of the library I thought “Where are the books!? ¬†Someone forgot the books!” but obviously with a retrieval system like that the books are anything but forgotten.

I do find it a little hard to believe that I could have any book I asked for in less than 5 minutes but perhaps I’m just being a resistant pill . . .
