TANK U: Download Station in the Library


A digital download station in the public library

Last week at ‘Publishing, beyond the book’, a public library seminar on the changing world of media and information the prototype of a download station, TANK U, was presented by Edo Postma of ProBiblio and Eppo van Nispen tot Sevenaer (Delft Public Library). TANK U wants to be a place in town where passers-by may download information on their mobile phone. Made available free of charge by their public library to inspire users with suggestions for reading, viewing or listening. Not the usual run-of-the-mill stuff, but suggestions that broaden one’s horizon and get the user in touch with all things beautiful the library has to offer. That, in short is the essence of this new project, TANK U. A download station full inspiration, made available by the public library.

Fascinating! I want to hear more about this as these stations are installed…
