library of nothing

This is the library (otherwise known as the void) . . .

Bizarre economics dictate that the library be scattered to diverse points of the department. Nooks and crannies sprout shelves while the space formerly known as the library sits empty. Some astrophysicists can be found, lost, wandering the corridors, trying to locate a shelf that may contain a clue to the whereabouts of a crucial tome (more than likely in storage awaiting re location), but most seem unperturbed, floating down the infinite shelves of cyberspace.

Another nail in the coffin of the tactile, file under entropy. The scholar of the future will need only a mouse finger and an eyeball.
