    I really enjoyed viewing the video and hearing how the Smithsonian libraries are so devoted in providing their resources to thier viewers. For example this new library has implemented a way in which users can access information for free via their computers. for example the Encyclopedia of Life, which contains about 35 million pages, is now accessible for anyone to use (free) via online. I hope more libraries will be able to follow suit and aim to make their resources more accessible for their users.
