          As libraries extend their reach beyond the constraint of physical fixed space via the fast and efficient use of online and digital resources, (Sadler 2012) a new paradigm for tools to support the role of the library in the digital age are being considered (Frischer 2005). The special architecture of the physical library has been designed specifically to enable information search and discovery through a transparent classification system and organisation, as well as facilitation of visual browsing. In this sense the library could be seen is an act of inspiration architecture, it enables search, and at the same time physically reminds us the path to discovery doesn't usually take a straight line. However, the digital library offers no such physical or visual feedback, and as libraries themselves move towards blended or fully digital collections this may affect users experience and engagement with the archive or collection and awareness of personal pathways as well as the activity of others* within the library space itself.
