The image of the library

On our second day in Champaign- Urbana, IL., we did a tour at the Undergraduated Library and Main Library. During the tour, we say this picture in the Main Library…


It says, “A university is just a group of buildings gathered around a library”, and if you didn´t know the Main Library is literally the center of the University of Illinois. It got me thinking the importance of the libraries and how the image is so significant in the education and information it provides regarding sustainable libraries.

Most of the people think of librarians as boring people or even just book keepers. The image we produce should be an image that transmits passion, leadership, innovation, interest, and commitment for the community development. Someone who is fully prepared for the challenges, that can adjust to the circumstances and with the vision of sustainable development concerning the 17 global goals presented by UNESCO.
