Many U.S. colleges and universities are making big changes to their libraries, finding ways to serve students and succeed in an increasingly digital world.

The days of musty books on shelves, bound journals, card catalogs, long tables and rules governing behavior are long gone. Today, many campus libraries have cafes, group study areas where talking is permitted, and sofas designed for taking a short nap. Some are even open 24-hours a day.

Julie Garrison, dean of libraries at Western Michigan University, says the welcoming additions reflect the latest thinking about the millennial generation’s learning habits.
