For decades academic libraries have been seen as portals to information, print resources and more recently digital resources, but, as Demas states, 'we have reawakened to the fact that libraries are fundamentally about people:-how they learn, how they use information, and how they participate in the life of a learning community' (Demas 2005, p. 25). As a result 'Libraries today are in transition both as institutions and as a building type' (Hartman 2000, p. 112).
