-- empty spaces --

Like all other libraries in Indonesia (ITB), it is mostly empty in the morning. The Furnitures are very simple, decorative and contemporary-designed if I may say. computers with broadband connection are lined up on the corner,  complete with big and sound-proofed headphones. This library holds 5,2 M of total collection (2009) in its inventory, mostly in science and engineering. The other fields are stored in another library. With such large physical collection, this scitech lib employs 226 staffs. Nowadays, library is just one tab away. There were more than 6.5 Million website visits in 2011. Next time I will compare those figures with Indonesia (ITB) lib stat. Have a nice weekend everybody.
