The Werkbank – the new table in the Sitterwerk Art Library – is expanding on the ideas of the current system of a true free-hand library: The shelf-scanning robot allows you to reorganise the books without losing their positions; the original table lets you pin down a collection of books and materials as a collection, and save it as a reading list for others to find. With the Werkbank we're introducing a complete research workflow, adding possibilities for two-dimensional digital maps, adding notes and scanned images to objects, a drag-and-drop print module, and a growing network based on intersections between books, materials, people and their collections.
Werkbank is a collaboration between
