Robots Deliver Books At University of Chicago

The new Joe and Rika Mansueto Library at the University of Chicago has gone digital (and futuristic).  This library has no shelves or books in plain view.  Instead, all books are kept in an underground storage space, which spans the length of the library.   The 3.5 million volumes of books are kept in stacks and are managed and delivered by robotic cranes, according to Wired.com.   Take a look at how the library, opening next week, will work.
