A very personal library in Ontario…

The University of Guelph is using their library in a novel fashion: creating a library of humans. Canada’s weekly magazine MacLeans reports the story here: http://oncampus.macleans.ca/education/2010/03/05/library-of-humans/.

Some of the titles included: “Dykes & Tykes: A Tale of Lesbian Motherhood,” “Female Race Car Driver,” “Living With Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder,” “Transsexual Guy,” Living with HIV,” and “Sri Lankan Conflict Survivor.” Patrons could browse the titles and then choose who they would like to check out for a time slot wherein they could engage in discussion with a living book.
