  • This study examines the digital library BiblioTech, opened 2013 in San Antonio, Texas. The aim of this study was to examine what the main aspects of operating a digital library are with a focal point on the practice of digital libraries. The research questions studied were; how does a digital library operate in general, how does the staff work in the digital library and if the physical place is important in a digital library. To examine these questions, twelve semi-structured interviews with BiblioTech’s full-time employees were conducted. Results show that the digital library operates almost like the traditional library. The main difference is that the books are (only) available in digital form. Since the lack of a collection to maintain, much of the time spent for the staff that works in the library is on interaction with the patrons, while for the technical responsible staff much time is spent of maintaining the technical equipment. BiblioTech also work on developing literacy through a few different technological solutions as screen-readers, audio books, equipment for visually impaired people etc. Analysis show that BiblioTech is all about providing technical services for the inhabitants that cannot afford it and therefore the library space is central. In addition, the physical place is important, so the inhabitants can learn together with the staff. In today’s society, an important part of developing literacy is to work with technology so therefore that is one of BiblioTech’s focal points.
