    The concept 'digital library' implies networked
    access, no? And that the users are not all located in
    the same physical space. Hence the noisy library is
    not the traditional physical space / building, but
    rather a cyber one. In the latter instance noisiness
    is good (as long as the infrastructure can handle the
    load/hit rate)
