Arguments for Library Centralisation in the Digital Era

Web Abstract: 
The library system at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium) is decentralized and scattered throughout the multiple building campus, which itself is spread over the town of Leuven. This paper presents an overview of a discussion at the university leading to the construction of a new central library for its Exact Sciences campus. Arguments are presented both in defense of a continuation of the decentralized library and those that were brought forward in favor of a centralized library. Also provided are some guidelines for the library's construction when and if approval was made.
