The interesting discussion on the ABC National Radio program ByDesign has 2 experts in the field of Library Design discussing with Alan Saunders the new aspects of Library spaces now and in the future. Alan describes the library as "Like a Tardis" bigger on the inside. I know this is true with the advent of new technologies, Ebooks, Elearning and wireless access, to name a few. Have a listen....
On another topic, Libraries have always dealt with new and interesting technologies and changes in their ways of working. It was the topic of a slightly fluffy but quality film set in the 1950's. (Yes, that long ago!)

Desk Set which is a charming little movie with Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn, and introduces the staff of a research unit of a newspaper to new technology and they have a competition to see who can extract and produce the required information faster. Romantic comedy for Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn, but interesting for the theme..
