The New University of Minnesota - Rochester does not have a physical library. They have an electronic 'information commons'.

I believe that was in the California higher education system.  I do not remember what campus.  If I remember correctly a library building was finally built there.

Subject: [Web4lib] Campus without a physical library


I need to track down some information.

Some time ago there was some writing and discussion in web4lib
about a college or university that was planned or built without a physical
library, it was supposed to be fully electronic. I have been trying
to track down
if this was just
1) rumours of being planned or
2) actually planned or
3) actually built.
and, if any of these, where?

Can anyone help me out here?
