Carnegie Library redesign

I thought this reconceptualization of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, which made a tremendous splash in library circles for its innovative (to libraries) methods as well as its results, might provide a useful modern counterpoint to the Van Slyck book.

Edited to add: Also consider Dan Chudnov's comparison of free and open-source software with Carnegie on the axes of need and philanthropy.
