Why ASU might not lead the way

Steven Bell over at ACRLog worries that the new Kindle DX will encourage universities to follow the lead of Arizona State University in disparaging print collections, library buildings, OPACs, and the whole concept of academic libraries in general.

Daily Show to the rescue! After this story, no one's going to want to be like Arizona State.

(The mention of the library comes in at 2:27. When the "reporter" points out that it's empty, that's another swipe at ASU, not a strike against libraries.)
