  1. every one of them, beautiful.

  2. Chicago State University. Its robotic stacks of pre-1990 material. I wish I could embed the image. I recently got a chance to see this one in person and behind the scenes.

  3. Wow, that's an incredible set up!

  4. good lookin out, dave. i saw that one, but didn't see where it was from AND wasn't sure if it was an actual library or not.
