PARADA, Alejandro E.. Spatiality and libraries: Towards a brief typology of the library space. Inf. cult. soc. [online]. 2015, n.33, pp.5-10. ISSN 1851-1740.

In this editorial, space changes in libraries are discussed. One of the most important issues facing these institutions is precisely the radical transformation of the traditional librarian spatiality. After defining and contextualizing the subject, it is proposed to make a brief typology of that spatiality. Thus, the following current dimensions are identified: Material, immaterial, biological, domain expansion, and the poli or multifunctional spatiality. The editorial concludes with a call for reflection on the future of libraries in front of the emergence of its spatial mutation.

Keywords : Space; Spatiality; Libraries; Theoretical aspects.
