The exhibition presents the ZBW’s leading role and exemplary solutions for the »Library of the Future«, raising awareness for the changes to come. For presenting these future demands in an authentic fashion the modularly built travelling exhibition features interconnected »Towers of Information« (data stacks) as a key image – accessing a source of information enables the accessing of further sources. This key image elaborates on the existing concept image for the development of the ZBW: following the spirit of »Open Science« and evolving from a »dusty« library into a digital, interconnected, and open access science library of the 21st century. The travelling exhibition presents these developments as a three dimensional space and as architecture. It creates a physical, tangible image of the ZBW’s evolution into a »Library of the Future« by visualising the tasks that ensue these changes. It illustrates the challenges attached to these tasks and the changing process, gives project examples, and allows a vision of the future by presenting current achievements and their future potential. The exhibition’s content and architecture is centred on the ZBW and its leading role in tackling one of society’s key questions: what does the library of the future look like?
